It was reported Saturday 12th September 1840 that the sale at the KINGS HEAD had been crowded with buyers.
The Brewery, ten public houses in Diss and several county houses were purchased by Mr. Samuel Farrow who said he intended to carry on business as before. It was understood that every lot in the auction was sold and the three day sale returned almost Fifty Thousand Pounds, far above the expectations of the interested parties.

 
 


The Stock and Effects of the Brewery were advertised 5th December 1840 as to be auctioned during January 1841.
The Stock included about 3000 bottles of highly flavoured wine, part of which had been in the bottle for seven years. There were two vats, each holding 200 barrels each, two of 100 each, seven of 40 each and fifteen of 30 each, as well as two smaller, all emptied and in excellent order; 500 excellent barrel casks, 200 liquor casks, liquor measures, troughs, brass cocks, taps, thermometers, hydrometer, saccharometer, sacks, barrows, pullies (sic), ladders, screens, fire engine, buckets, pipes and other requisites in a large Brewery.
Out-door Effects included Ten good-shaped powerful cart-horses, adapted for dray or plough, three waggons, three beer and malt carts and a variety of farming implements.
