Bonded Sugar Houses, crushing warehouse, and raw sugar warehouse ...
To be let or sold, the extensive sugar houses and warehouses situate in GUINEA ST, Bristol. In the City of Bristol : consisting of 2 distinct sugar houses, one built for 7 pans, the other for 5 pans, together with a raw sugar warehouse, and a warehouse approved for crushing lumps for exportation; the whole in excellent repair. These premises possess every advantage and convenience for carrying on the business of a sugar refinery, in bond for exportation as well as for the home trade, the sugar houses being quite distinct and seperated by party walls. The whole of these premises, with extensive cellars, have been approved by the Lords of the Treasury as bonded warehouses, and have been fitted up at an expense exceeding £1,100; and being in a spacious court or yard, and unconnected with any other buildings, are the most secure property of the kind in the city of Bristol. This property would either be let or sold; if sold, a large portion of the purchase money might remain on mortgage.

The extensive and commodious sugar refining house and works of Messrs Lightfoot & Co situate in BATCHELOR STREET, Dale Street, Liverpool.
The house was erected by Messrs Lightfoot in 1831 of the best materials, and in a very substantial manner, for the purpose of carrying on the sugar refining business upon the most improved principle. The house is 9 stories high, and 120 feet long by 45 feet wide, and contains a complete suite of counting houses. The fires and chimneys being quite detached from the main building, this risk is accepted by the Insurance Offices at a much lower premium than ordinary refinery buildings.
The building contains 5 vacuum pans of a large size (with room for 2 more), also a condensing steam engine of 25 horse power, with 3 boilers of 30 horse power each; an excellent and never-failing spring of water and a capacious reservoir, and every requisite for carrying on the sugar refinery business on a very extensive scale. The apparatus is in perfect order, and is in use at the present time.
With the prospect of the admission of foreign sugars in bond, the present is a very desirable opportunity for investment by a capitalist or a joint stock company. The tenure is freehold of inheritance.

By Messrs Fuller & Horsey by auction at the Mart, Tokenhouse Yard, London, on Wednesday July 31 ...
Freehold premises of about 22,000 sq ft fronting both GT ALIE ST & SOMERSET ST, at present a sugar refinery comprising a sugarhouse of 6 working floors, fill house and pan room, strongly timbered and supported by iron columns, 2 stoves, sugar warehouse, retort house, 2 chimneys, engine and boiler houses, yard, charcoal room, brewery, men's dwelling house, detached offices, manager's residence, 3 dwelling houses at 28 & 29 Gt Alie St and 16 Somerset St, and a deep well giving a constant supply of pure water.
The plant and machinery for carrying on the business of sugar refining includes 4 copper vacuum pans with heaters, 40 syrup and liquor cisterns, copper blow-up cistern, sugar cutting machine, 2 crushing mills, pumps, 2 copper clearing pans, 6 copper filters, 7 charcoal cisterns, 50 horse power condensing steam engine, 4 double flue Cornish boilers, 4 steam engines, 4 tubular boilers, hogshead steamer, 9 charcoal retorts, and all fittings.
"The premises are well arranged as a sugar refinery, but the large area covered by the property, and the scarcity of freehold land in so central a situation, lead to the conclusion that, by the clearance of the site and the erection of warehouses or buildings suited to the modern requirements of trade, a very profitable return for the investment of capital would be ensured."
