Brewhouse Court was an early Victorian court situated off the south side of Brewhouse lane. It was demolished in the 1930s as part of a slum clearance programme.
Brewhouse Lane was called Fennell (or Vennell) Lane in the medieval period and Emmott Morgan's Lane in the 17th century. Situated just south of Vyse Lane, it was one of the many narrow lanes that crossed the medieval town from east to west, joining the High Street with Bugle Street or French Street. It was renamed in the 19th century after a brewery situated at its western end. It disappeared when Castle Way was constructed in the 1960s.
