Lovely building. This 1880s building, trying to look like a French palace with the addition of an Italianate chimney, began life as the Anglo-Bavarian Brewery, Shepton Mallet. It once had two towers, topped with pavilion roofs, that made it look even more French and palatial, but it’s still one of the most prominent buildings in the town. The enterprise it was built to house was an interesting one. In 1872, what had been the Pale Ale Brewery took on a number of brewers from Bavaria and they began to brew lager – it’s said they were the first in this country to do so. To emphasize the uniqueness of their products, the company changed its name to the Anglo-Bavarian Brewery. It prospered, and exported the beers widely, especially to Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and other outposts of the British empire. The brewery was rebuilt in 1881 in the Second Empire form it takes today, one of the great ornamental breweries of the late-19th century, with the company name emblazoned in the pediment. The architect is not known, but the firm was proud of its building and put the brewery’s image on its bottle labels, as brewers often did in the early-20th century. People liked the beer too, the ‘Celebrated Amber Ale’ as they called it, and it garnered prizes in Europe and Australia. No doubt the Bavarian input helped. But at the time of World War I it didn’t do for a British company to have a German connection, and stockists removed the unpatriotic bottles from their displays. The business declined and although there was an inter-war revival under new owners it was too late. After the World War II the building became the Anglo Trading Estate. And so, for the moment, it remains, although there are plans for redevelopment. It’s listed, though, so will keep its status as a much-loved local landmark.

Agree with tom's log below. From the GR it seems reasonably certain that the OS sighted to a chimney 60-70m further W than the square chy being shown in several photos here - this ornate square chy is much closer to the A371 than the intersected stn is. The 1930 and 1968 OS 1:2k5 maps show the likely chy, but it's not shown on the 1981 map.

this was built as the Anglo Bavarian Brewery but is now a trading estate.

The Anglo Trading Estate is situated in the west of Shepton Mallet. The site has a fine looking square brick chimney but I think the trig may have been a more traditional factory chimney I have seen on a copyrighted old photograph. The imposing building is a Grade II* listed former Victorian Brewery, reputedly the home of British lager, which stopped brewing when its Anglo-Bavarian beer fell out of favour between the wars. The Estate was viewed from the adjacent Commercial Road.
