A brewery was installed behind the Nags Head pub in early 1984. A homemade 4BBL plant was used. The brewery stopped brewing in May 1985 when the brewer left to set up The Tate Brewery Limited. Immediately Abbey Brewery relocated from Retford to here before moving to Hereford to become Wye Valley Brewery Ltd.

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.
