Historical Note

The Brake Yard has an extensive history where this home is now built. For many years The Brake Yard was part of the St Mawes social and economic scene. Originally owned by J A Dotson, from the 1900’s there was stabling for six horses and a harness room which also served as the general meeting place. In those days the Dotson family also owned the Victory Inn and brewed the beer too. The final and vital use of the horse drawn transport was to supply the materials with which to brew and the conveyance of barrels of the beer to wherever they were needed.

The Brake Yard was also the focal point for private transport and visitors to St Mawes would leave their horses and traps there during the day while visiting friends or relatives. The was long before the present approach road to the centre of the village was laid.

History Continued

During the first world war, many horses went from the Brake Yard to France. One horse returned from the journey called Tommy where he finished an honourable career on light duties in the peace and tranquillity of St Mawes

Motor vehicles gradually took over and The Brake Yard became the home of the village fire engine. In 1972 The Brake Yard was acquired by the local building firm and continued to be used as garaging until 1989. A number of Cornish tradesmen who worked for this firm were employed building the four homes on this site. They are built in a traditional style, a fitting continuation of the history of this small part of St Mawes.
