Brewing started at The Castle Eden Inn in 1826. Brewing under the Nimmo brand, they traded until being taken over by Whitbread in 1963. The Nimmo brand was dropped and the brewery renamed to Whitbread East Pennines although most of the output was sold as Castle Eden. During the following years many of the brands that Whitbread had acquired were brewed here following the closure of their home plant. In 1998 Whitbread announced plans to close the brewery, however the brewery was saved and become independent of Whitbread once again. Purchased Cameron's from Wolverhampton & Dudley in late 2001 and closed the Castle Eden by March 2002. The brand was sold on in 2015 and a new Castle Eden Brewery was born.

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.
