Former Archers Brewery, Penzance Drive, Swindon
A once-successful, small independent brewery, Archers was in a converted and extended railway works building. The original building is closer to the viewpoint. The white-painted section was new.

Update 2010: Sadly, the company went into administration in 2009 and the building is now looking a little neglected however, there are reports that there plans to convert the building into a micro-brewery and pub/restaurant LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link )

Update 2011: The premises re-opened as a restaurant in August 2011.
