The Brewery

Recommended Posts

I along with a non member have had our eyes peeled on this place for ages. We have watched eagerly as the wind down neared it's completion. It's not an unhappy story either, no administration but a company that seem on the up. A local brewery based in Leicester called Everards. The explore was massively rewarding and a chance at an explore of how a brewery is before all the good bits are taken out.

Everards itself was founded in 1849 but only moved to this site in 1985 so in the grand scale of life it's not an old place, it has now moved just over the road into a great new place where it should prosper for many more years to come. The building was opened by one of my favourite politicians too, Nigel Lawson.

Hope you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed taking them. A tad picture heavy.

Always did mean to add this report as time went on. Having been several times now the big metal shed that may have housed Mr Everards helicopter was always locked up tight. The helicopter landing area was just in front of the building, a grand entrance for the boss man. This occasion resulted in us being chased by the local feds :lol:, all part of the fun. Anyhow a few new images to complete the report, thanks for the nice words guys.

In the space of a month dismantling of the site is in full swing, view from the office roof.
