Started brewing in November 1995. It was claimed that at 1070ft above sea level this was the highest brewery in Britain. A 5BBL plant was used. In 1998 the owners sold the hotel and brewery and took over Yates Brewery Ltd. By Summer 2001, some beers were being brewed by Darwin Brewery Ltd. The plant was removed in late 2002.

Since the 1974 local government reorganisation there has been much controversy over many county boundaries. The links we provide cover all areas possibilities: Ceremonial Counties which are the counties 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.
