    The business that became Cliff Brewery was started in 1723 ( in Kings Quay Street, Harwich) by Thomas Cobbold and is believed to be the second oldest independent brewery in England. It stood above the quays of the River Orwell at Ipswich, since 1746.

    Cobbold merged with local rival, Tollemache Breweries in 1957 to form Tolly Cobbold. The brewery ceased operations in 2002, when the Tolly Cobbold company merged with Ridley's brewery.


    Gave this a shot as were were heading to Sevs, but had to wait for someone to finish work before we could go. The place is part demolished, but theres still plenty of gems, and cool bits to wander round. It's mostly a shell, but still a pretty cool place, and an easy in, so it was a nice start to the day. Visited with Sentinel, The_Raw, and 5PR1NK5. Be sure to check out their reports when they go up! I know they have some great photos!

    This was one of my favourite rooms because of the blue glass in the roof. It gave this awesome tint, but the light coming from the windows below was normal so it gave this very cool contrast.

    This is what I liked to call the pidgeon graveyard. Its a real shame that these birds get in, then can't find a way out. Most seemed to congregate in this room, and as such eventually die, either from flying into walls, or I guess starving. I counted at least 12 carcasses in here, and there were more around.

    This is personally my favourite shot from this site, and not one I had seen before.
