    Default Boddington's Brewery

    I've just been re-doing a few pages on my website, including the one for Boddington's Brewery. Apparently demolition work has started now, and the future of the chimney is in doubt. A big shame really as it's quite iconic.

    Anyway, these pictures are just over a year old, but were taken soon after the brewery closed. More here.

    No - security there could be easily seen from in the building. Plus when we were in there a van pulled up inside the site, so we knew there were guards about. If you get caught with just one small thing, like a beer mat, you can be done for theft. Too big a risk I'm afraid! Used to take hundreds from pubs though, back when me and my brother used to collect them...

    It would be a shame if something as iconic as that chimney was demolished

    The Cains one seems to be going strong. The brewery tour is well worth it if you get a chance...
