The Old Brewery

I have always been fascinated by the unseen and unusual, and although my main focus in photography has moved towards wildlife and nature photography, I still occasionally enjoy exploring and photographing the unseen parts of the city.

Last week I had the opportunity to photograph an old brewery that I have had my eye on for a long time now. Although the majority of the building’s original artefacts and features have been removed or destroyed, there is still a lot to see with some fantastic graffiti.

On with the photos!


Inside the main brewing hall showing the holes where the huge vats were once placed.


Peeling paint on the ceiling and the view down the holes to the floor below.


The dizzying view down the stairs, taken using a very shaky camera technique!


Some of the buildings reflected in a huge puddle.


A pile of old beer kegs and some of the aptly named “art fags”.


The view back up the staircase from the basement.

Some unusual and qwerky graffiti.


Long shadows and some more graffiti.


Some of Phlegms extremely creative work.


A section of the staircase lit up by warm afternoon sun.


A final view of the gaping holes that once held gigantic brewing vats.

Thanks for looking!
