    Firstly, many thanks to Ali Explores on this. I owe you a Fosters/John Smiths/Kronenburg.

    These photos were taken over 2 visits, with DHL, The Engineer, God and a non-member. 2 highly-enjoyable visits with good people, it's just a shame there were no cans left around for us.

    Now, I'm no expert in business studies, but I'm going to go out on a whim here and say that the main reason for this plant possibly closing, is that they didn't produce any cider.

    Let's look at this conclusive evidence.

    Bulmers Cider Mill, Hereford - Open
    Thatchers Cider, Sandford - Open
    Dick Willows Cider Farm, Box - Open
    Berkshire brewery, Reading - Closed

    Here's some back and forth history on the company who ran the brewery up until April of this year.

    There's a BBC news article about the brewery closure here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/local/berkshire/hi/people_and_places/history/newsid_8586000/8586089.stm

    Now, I (half) apologise about the amount of photos. A couple of the recent reports have had as little as 5 photos in them, which when you're considering the size of the operation and process contained within this site, isn't enough.

    If you're unhappy about looking through 31 photos, then press the red X now.
