History

Charles Wells acquired a brewery, built in Horne Lane, Bedford in 1816, in 1875. Moved to their current location in 1976. The brewery at this time was the largest family owned brewery in Britain. Announced in May 2006 that production would transfer to a new company, of which a 60% share will be owned, formed by a merger with Young's to become Wells & Young's Brewing Co Ltd. The deal went started on 1st October 2006, since when Wells beers have been brewed for them by Wells & Young's on what was Wells plant. Wells is now a pub owning company only and does not brew. The brewery was then taken over by Marstons, with the original brewery becoming Eagle Brewery, although a new Wells & Co Brewery is expected to open in early 20201.

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.
