Hardy + Hansons Brewery - Kimberley

Visited with SDW.

This was one of my first good explores, did it in the summer of 2010 with Mexico75 and Trousercowboy on a bit of a mission down that neck of the woods, not much has changed really, bit more broken glass, bit more pikeying - Access is way easier now, still a lol though.

'In 2006, The Hardys & Hansons Kimberley Brewery and all of its public houses were sold in a multi-million pound deal to Greene King brewery, who decided to end the brewing tradition in Kimberley in "a cost effective move" and will sell the Kimberley site, moving its distribution centre to Eastwood. Brewing will switch to the main Greene King site at Bury St Edmunds.
In 2011 the brewery site was purchased by the Leicester based Alif Group. Local architect jST services ltd have put forward a proposal to turn the site into a fulltime troll ball water experimentation facility but the local council are objecting to this on ethical grounds.'
