    Default Mitchell's Of Lancaster Brewery 2011

    Founded in 1871 at the Black Horse Inn in Lancaster, this brewery moved to the Central Brewery in 1880. In 1984 moved to the current site that was vacated by the Thwaites take over and closure of Yates and Jackson. Announced on 3rd June 1999 that they were to cease brewing in mid July with the loss of 8 jobs. Brewing stopped 7th July and the range of beers stocked by the pubs has been revealed as a poor choice of National brewers beers, for instance Tetley Bitter, Boddingtons Bitter, Courage Directors.

    This was on my list of to do's for a while and being just down toe road seemed silly not to have a wonder inside this gem of a building! After seeing contractors on the roof partialy removing the asbestos roof and replaceing with poly sheets i thought the build was going to be saved! but with a change of notice on the doors made it clear that mitchells brewery is soon to be demolished.

    With this in mind i arranged a visit. On with the pictures

























    Centros planning - Canal Corridor North Site, Edward Street, Lancaster. Comprehensive redevelopment comprising a retail led mixed used scheme to include demolition of existing buildings and associated structures, the demolition of all residential dwellings, the closure and alteration of highways, engineering works and construction of new buildings and structures to provide, retail, restaurants, cafes, workshop, rehearsal space and residential accommodation, together with ancillary and associated development including new pedestrian link bridge and enhanced pedestrian routes and open spaces, car parking and vehicular access and servicing facilities

    this is what will be replaceing the brewery and the surrounding area linky

    more local info can be found HERE

    more of my images can be found here

    I have much unfinished buisness here as all my images were rushed due to previous explores so will update when i have the time to capture the time and essance it deserves. thanks for looking

    The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.
