New Pavement Brewery
New Pavement Brewery was one of the oldest breweries in Pocklington, which in the early nineteenth century, was run by the Collinson family.The Collinson family owned much of the property and inns to do with the sale and brewing of Ale in Pocklington, and in some of the villages of the district. The will of Elisha Collinson left most of the property in trust for his daughters with Thomas Scaife (son in law) a principal trustee. The Scaife family took over as brewers, until a tenancy agreement of George Scaife ran out in 1895, when the trustees sold the estate. Therefore the brewery had to close (see sale notice below). Francis 'Frank' Scaife (son of George) left a portion of the residue of the family brewing inheritance in his will for the building of a new Swimming Pool on Burnby road for the people of Pocklington when he died in 1937.
