The brewery that refuses to die! Reports of this brewery's demise have been going on for years, but it's still here - not for all that much longer, though, they definitely are demolishing it this time :)

So good to go back for another look. The brewhouse is being dismantled, and quite a bit is screened off for asbestos removal, but there's some nice blue tankage left.

For just a place to have fun exploring, McEwan's is hard to beat - lots to climb, lots of staircases and ladders, and lots and lots of tunnels - going under several public roads to different sites. Plus, it has some excellent control rooms:

Switchgear rooms:

And funky blue tiling:

Across the road, demolition is progressing:

But there is a second control room:
