Wrexham Brewery, Yarbridge, Brading Isle of Wight

Friday, May 29th, 2009

This brewery is shown on the 1862 25” OS map but it was later known as the Yarbridge Brewery, a much more sensible name! It was located next to the Yarbridge Inn (formerly known as the Anglers Inn). Why was it called the Wrexham Brewery? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Radcliffe BreweryA query on behalf of Andy Walton (

I’m looking to research the above Brewery that was sold to Butlers, Wolverhampton in 1947.

Could you possibly indicate potential sources of reference to further my search, which is proving very difficult!

Any help in this matter would be be gratefully received.

Many thanks,
