    A visit with TehCocoRico on a successful day, seeming to see more than the other reports on here, including the old shop on the other side of the road to the main brewery.

    Our explore started with a look around the smaller side of the road, with nice views of the tower on the other side.

    A quick walk around found the truck pump.

    We then made our way into a small, dark, pretty poor looking garage, to find over 100 bottles of Gale's Prize Old Ale

    Along with the instructions to a pretty old fire extinguisher.

    We then found our way through a few empty warehouses into the old shop, which is now empty, except for one till.

    Next, we headed across the road into the main part of the site, into half a room, right next to the gate, with lots of barrels and lots of colour.

    From there we went into the main courtyard. I have no idea what used to be here, but it's now pretty difficult to tell...

    From there, into a vaguely underground couple of huge rooms.
    One of the scariest moments of my life to walk into a pitch-black room, swing a torch round and find this....

    From there the only place to go was into the main part of the brewery, where the well is situated. Being very very deep.
    We saw this, with it's strange beauty. It seems to have been like it for quite some time...

    And the only thing left to do was to climb the tower, with a nice view of the shop across the road.

    From there, it was a nice hour walk back to the train station... Well worth it though.
