Brewery buildings and historic plant

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

We are very keen to create a list on the BHS web site, similar to that for Defunct Brewery Livery, that covers any remaining brewery buildings and / or historic brewery plant in the UK.

Please post details, including the location, of ANY such buildings, or parts of buildings, or plant that you are aware of. If you have a photograph that would be an added bonus.

Many thanks

Does anybody know where to find more information about Woodhams Brewery, apparently active in Victoria Street/East Row, Rochester from 1750-1918? Especially interested in what kind of beer did they brew, anyone who has old Woodhams bottles, any old pictures of the brewery and when was the brewery built and rebuilt?

Wath upon Dearne – James Utley 1860s

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

I’m researching my family history and do know that the Ut(t)ley families of South/West and North Yorkshire followed the trade of stone masons.  I wonder if there’s anyone else researching this family and would know more about this particular brewing family.  I am certain that they are related.  Any info much appreciated.
