No 7 Drake Road was formerly listed as No 11 Market Street. Former brewery incorporating probable reused roof from Tavistock Abbey. This forms the back range to Nos 10-12 Market Street and is almost concealed behind it. Probably built late in 17th century by Nicholas Hunt a maltster (Mayor 1683, Senior Overseer 1704 and 1711) but incorporating an earlier roof probably from the Abbey buildings. One storey to Drake Road elevation; three storeys stone ashlar to Market Street elevation, connected by long flight of stone steps. Two granite archways with three-centred heads keystones, moulded spandrels and stop moulded jambs. It retains 12 fine roof trusses with curved collars of massive form, probably 16th century and salvaged from one of the Abbey buildings. In early and mid 18th century this was a malthouse and later was part of a brewery.
