Brewery remains

Tuesday, November 18th, 2008

fenstanton-5-july.jpgYou requested evidence of brewery buildings still surviving. According to the “Century” book the Fenstanton Brewery in Fenstanton, Cambs, is still standing. I went to check it out recently and confirm that it is! I have a couple of photos, but cannot work out how to attach them – this is my first blog posting!! If someone can help I will pass them to the BHS.
