This is one the first places I had ventured to when I first invested in my camera at the beginning of the year. Unfortunately that trip was cut short, as I was unable to get many shots, it was pointless to create a post. I had been thinking of a revisit for a while, therefore when a free morning popped up I decided to take up the opportunity.

Since my first visit, the place had deteriorated dramatically. There was new graffiti and a lot more of the steel had been removed. I know this place is has been done over and over but I wanted it to cross it off my nerris adventure list...:)

History:

Stones Brewery (William Stones Ltd) was a regional brewery founded in 1868 by William Stones in Sheffield, West Riding of Yorkshire, England and purchased by Bass Brewery in 1968. After its closure in 1999 its major brand, Stones Bitter, has continued to be produced by the Molson Coors Brewing Company.

William Stones had started brewing in 1847 in Sheffield with Joseph Watts. Following Watts' death in 1854 Stones continued brewing by himself. In 1868 he purchased the lease of the Neepsend Brewery, and renamed it the Cannon Brewery, and he continued to brew there until his death in 1894. Stones' success saw him die as one of the richest men in Sheffield, although he lived a modest life. The company was taken over by Bass in 1968, then in 2000 Bass sold its brewing operations to the Belgian brewer Interbrew who were ordered by the Competition Commission to sell the Stones brand. In 2002, the brand was purchased by the American Coors Brewing Company, who merged to become Molson Coors in 2005.
