    An opportunist explore of a stunning (if a little stripped) brewery building. Myself and Clebby slipped in unnoticed and spent a couple of hours getting lost in a building that thoroughly lived up to the brewery stereotype of an absolute rabbit warren of locked doors, parallel staircases and secret rooms. We knew that brewing had not taken place in the main brewery for a number of years (possibly since the 1990 buy out?) but it still had plenty of interest to see. From the epic tower to basement boiler house there was plenty of challenges and probably still plenty of secrets to be found if you spend enough time checking every last loft hatch, mini door way or cellar passage.

    Nice visit lads, good too see you found your way to the tower, superb views across the city, I spent many an hour skiving up there when I worked there.
    We made a trip last year while the workies were stripping out all of the metal, and nobody stopped us, we mainly wanted to see the underground reservoir and with my prior knowledge of the building headed straight for the basement at the back of the old boiler house. Unfortunately it was getting late and decided to return the next day where we ended up bumping into the owner, who politely told us to leave.

    It's not an underground reservoir, it's an artesian well!
