Sorry that I have been rather slack at getting reports up the past few weeks, I have been so busy exploring and bottle digging I have just had no comp time at all!

William Stones had been brewing on this site since 1865. The original brewery, which was a beautiful building if the line drawings are anything to go by was demolished in the 1930's and the new brewery was built in typical style of the period. That said the extensive basements seem to be from the original brewery, with vaulted ceilings and little tunnels to various rooms.

Now I had wanted to go in here for YEARS! But a rather unsavoury group of pikey security men with dogs and cameras always made it pretty impossible! However Speed and I found the place deserted, although virtually stripped of anything but the brickwork. That said the brewhall was stunning, with a central staircase flanked by two huge glass cylinders... and I'm sure your all thinking how the hell did they escape in a building which has been smashed up as much as this!

Finished off with the roof of the brewhall for fine views across Steel City:cool:
