History

Brewing originally started at this site in 1824 as Usher's Wiltshire Brewery. Merged with Watney Mann in 1960. Ownership transferred to Grand Metropolitan who accepted the offer of a management buy out in 1990, the brewery regaining independence and taking its current name. The brewery was closed during the first months of 2000, as it was, in accountants speak, "not cost effective" despite running at full capacity. The company still owns the pub estate and renamed itself to Innspired Pubs plc. The beers brewed under the Usher name are brewed for Refresh UK. The brew plant was exported to North Korea.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the areas for which a Lord-Lieutenant has been appointed, Historic Counties (and their allied county boroughs) which represent the position before the 1974 re-organisation and Local Authority which represents the third tear District level.
