    Isaac Lord was a local businessman who bought this Ipswich waterfront site from the Cobbold brewing family in 1900. Some buildings date from the early 15C to late 18C, reflecting the site's commercial and industrial use over four centuries.

    During the period of Cobbolds ownership, some buildings were used as a Maltings, and a pub called the Wherry Inn was also located on the site. In 1930, Reginald Cooper joined Isaac Lord's business, helping to grow the firm's corn and coal interests, and eventually becoming the owner of the property.
