Founded in 1745 and taken over by Charrington in 1963. It became part of the Bass group following the merger with Bass in 1967. Interbrew took it over following their takeover of Bass in 2000. In August 2009, it was purchased by C & C Group plc. Mainly used for brewing lager, it has brewed some cask-conditioned beer under the James Aitken & Co (Falkirk) Ltd brand mainly between 1995 and 1998. The brewery is still in operation, but no cask ale is brewed there.

For historical information, we suggest you also visit the brewery page on the unfortunately no longer updated Beermad.

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.
