A premises that appears to have had a publichouse license from 1879 to 1893 and then a beerhouse license 1896 to 1913, followed by a public house license until today. It was a home brew pub till c1920. the 1879 entry is a bit of a guess.

In the 1841 census John Lowe is the 9 year old son of Benjamin Lowe. The Lowe family are living with the Quinney family in Red House Road. By 1851 John Lowe had become a hand loom weaver in silk in Red House Road. Then in 1861 he is a silk weaver in Cromwell Road and in 1871 becoming a baker and grocer. This premises had a license by 1879 and seems to have become the Bricklayers Arms.

1879 John Lowe & baker & grocer
1896 Mrs M. Aiers
1903 Amos Aiers
1905 George Sidwell
1911 - 1913 Mrs R. A. Sidwell
