Lonely remains of Cape Hill Brewery
Lonely remains of Cape Hill Brewery
Sadly no one had Geographed this site earlier as this is almost all that now remains of the once extensive Cape Hill Brewery built by Mitchells and Butlers in 1898. It was one of the largest cask ale breweries in the country. The Brewery was taken over by the American Coors company in February 2002, who then announced its closure by the end of the year and moved the brewing to Burton-on-Trent. In June 2004 Coors announced the sale of the site and demolition commenced in mid 2005. It would have been possible to have taken a Geograph in the early days of this website before the Brewery was systematically reduced to current forlorn pile of rubble.
