  2. Founded in 1868; Stones Brewery went on to brew various beers on site until the 1999 closure after a takeover from Bass. On site Stones Bitter was brewed from 1948; an extremely popular tipple with the local steel workers. The drink availability expanded across the North of England in 1977 and was available nationwide from 1979. It became the highest selling Bitter in the UK by 1992. The Stones Brewery underwent a rebuild in 1962 so was only around 37 years old by the 1999 closure. Stones Owner Bass relocated production to Burton on Trent and Tadcaster and the brewery has sat ever since. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 More At: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/sets/72157644632054683/
  3. This is actually the second part of mine and Landie Man's trip up to the land of pies and gravy this weekend but the first part was much more video-oriented as you'll find out in due course hopefully. Again the trip up was a mixed bag with some disappointing fails, some interesting experiences like feeding tangy cheese Doritos to a pair of ducks in a car park and me taking an early foot bath at another of the locations and of course some great successes. Cannon Brewery in Sheffield has been done many many times before so I'll save the history and get on with some photos. It's bashed, trashed and semi-demolished but it's a place I've wanted to see for a while and it was a very enjoyable few hours, personally I find these sort of locations very photogenic. Lots more photos here https://www.flickr.com/photos/mookie427/sets/72157644102866800/
  4. Well finally onto our last explore of the night last night, myself, woody and two others went on to do this one, after a long day and night exploring this was 4th on our list for the day/night, been wanting too see this section for a long time so to finally see it made us more than happy and we all came out with a big smile on our faces, apart from the chalk grafitti its very nice down there and harldy any litter etc. bit wet in places but thats to be expected with all the rain we've had the last few months. i wont bore you with the info as theirs so much of it about and been posted before but heres a few pics i took and i hope they show just what a lovely place it is :-).
  5. Visited this place about three times back in 2010,Never have been happy with these pics but in my defence i was very very drunk most the time so they are what they are.. Fast forward 3 and a half years and i was back down here.Saw a report go up on this last year and after a while we went to pop the lid and have another look round,the lid refused to lift more than a few inches so after a couple of attempts and feeling a bit puzzled we left it . Recently pics have been appearing on Failbook so we assumed the alternative access point had been used! On getting in my first port of call was the far end to see why that cover wouldn't lift,Seems some BELLEND had tied rope under the cover and onto the ladder inside which would account for it not lifting,Ropes still on the floor and in one of my pics.. Brief info.. The cannon rd section lays in between the westcliff and the main section (train tunnel)..access into the main section is stopped by about a 25m long stretch of roof fall and at the westcliff end by a sewer pipe cutting it off and running into the westcliff section and up what would have been the ellington section now after a 30 odd foot crawl totally consuming the tunnel itself... visited with Spaceinvader,Obscurity,STeALtH and his missus.. pics in no real order Note the rope on floor which had been tied under the cover one of a chalk shaft.. Sorry about the fisheye overkill the wangle is bust and in shop
  6. The Cannon Rd section of Ramsgate tunnels, nice night out with Fortknox0 and Gadget, in by midnight, out by 6.30, in the shower, eat some food and off to work ;D. Cheers for looking peeps , Frosty.
  7. UK cannon brewery sep 2013

    I know this has recently been done so ive taken a few different shots, I enjoyed this one a nice big place and your just left to wander freely, Ran into a couple of explorers here from 28 days. tried to convert them ha. Stones Brewery (William Stones Ltd) was a regional brewery founded in 1868 by William Stones in Sheffield, West Riding of Yorkshire, England and purchased by Bass Brewery in 1968. After its closure in 1999 its major brand, Stones Bitter, has continued to be produced by the Molson Coors Brewing Company. William Stones had started brewing in 1847 in Sheffield with Joseph Watts. Following Watts' death in 1854 Stones continued brewing by himself. In 1868 he purchased the lease of the Neepsend Brewery, and renamed it the Cannon Brewery, and he continued to brew there until his death in 1894. Stones' success saw him die as one of the richest men in Sheffield, although he lived a modest life. The company was taken over by Bass in 1968, then in 2000 Bass sold its brewing operations to the Belgian brewer Interbrew who were ordered by the Competition Commission to sell the Stones brand. In 2002, the brand was purchased by the American Coors Brewing Company, who merged to become Molson Coors in 2005 Stones Bitter was brewed at the Cannon Brewery from 1948 and was popular with Sheffield's steel workers. Stones Bitter was originally available across the south of Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, with distribution extended to the rest of the north of England in 1977, and nationwide from 1979, accompanied by a considerable marketing push. Increasing demand saw it also brewed at other Bass breweries from the 1970s onwards. The beer's popularity reached its apex in 1992 when it was the country's highest selling bitter, selling over a million barrels.[2] The beer has been lauded in certain quarters as "one of Sheffield's most famous exports". After the Cannon's closure production was continued elsewhere. Keg Stones Bitter (3.7 per cent alcohol by volume) is brewed by Molson Coors at their brewery in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire and the canned product is brewed at their Burton upon Trent brewery. And finnaly somebodys bed :/ Thanks for looking.
  8. Me n da boi + beckypoo + jessington decided to hit this place up its rate good. Stones Brewery was a regional brewery founded in 1868 by William Stones of Sheffield. William Stones had started brewing in 1847 in Sheffield with Joseph Watts. Following Watts’ death in 1854 Stones continued brewing by himself. In 1868 he purchased the lease of the Neepsend Brewery, and renamed it the Cannon Brewery, and he continued to brew there until his death in 1894. The company was taken over by Bass in 1968, then in 2000 Bass sold its brewing operations to the Belgian brewer Interbrew. Shepherd, Green & Hatfield were the first to brew at the site in 1838 at what was then a respectable residential district. By 1895 the brewery was equipped with “an expensive plant…excellent stores and cellars, spacious covered and open yards, offices, stabling and workshops.The marketing and sales offices on the brewery site were completed in 1958. A new £500,000 five storey brewhouse was operational by 1962, and was one of the most up to date in the country. An on-site public house was opened in the basement of the brewery in 1964, initially named The Underground, but later renamed The Pig and Whistle; it was used by brewery workers and visitors to the brewery. At its peak the brewery produced 50,000 hectolitres of cask conditioned Stones each year. The office building was sold off in 1985. In 1992 a visitor’s centre building was opened. In 1995 the brewery was used as a shooting location for the film When Saturday Comes. It all finally closed in 1999 and now has become derelict and an area for local graffiti artists to show off their talent.
