Mitchell's (Yates & Jacksons) of Lancaster
(Another older report I have not had chance to post yet!)

History
This is a former yates and jackson brewery which mitchells occupied after Y&T ceased brewing. on the gate on brewery lane is Mitchell's of Lancaster Brewery Est 1865.

However the precise date of the building as a malt house cannot be verified, there is a date stone on the gable end of the building dated 1669. however on the mackreth map of Lancaster it's dated 1778. 1872 the brewery became the possession of Yates and Jackson.In 1984 Yates and Jackson was taken over by Thwaites and the brewery sold to the Mitchells brewery.

The brewery was named after William Mitchell who signed his first lease for his first pub and brewhouse, the black horse inn of Lancaster, Mitchells is still a family business after 130 years.

The brewery it self was used to make cask ales but a decline finally saw the brewery close in 1999, Thwaites still brew Lancaster Bomber formerly brewed here among many others.The building was due for demo but was over turned by a high court judge when save Britains heritage appealed against them the future of the buidling is still uncertain but is of grade II listing so will be around for a while yet.
The Visit
After failing miserably at another local landmark, we decided to drag ourselves out of our miserable feelings and visit this place, Initially I was not too impressed with this palce as it just appeared to be a trashed office with not much to photograph, but my view was soon changed as I discovered multiple levels with some rather interesting bits left behind and in the end we spent a number of hours wandering round the place.
