The Dolphin Brewery premises on Church Street were saved from serious fire by Mr Thomas Witchell, who whilst crossing the yard in the evening saw a light over the engine house.  He found a joist on fire and was able to suppress the flames with some nearby sacks and water.  An alarm was given and help was soon on hand.  The fire was thought to be caused by an over heated flue.  [Gloucestershire Echo - Friday 08 September 1899]
