Sometimes people making a post attach files before abandoning the post, these files are then left in the system without any reference.
I found this rather interesting picture of a brewery, could the poster perhaps tell us about it?

That's Benskins Brewery which used to be in Watford and I have that picture in my collection. I can't say I can ever remember posting it on to this forum though.

As you can see the line passed right underneath the main brewery block emerging on to the other side where the ale loading dock was situated. I've attached a picture of that. A view which I find tantalising as I have been unable to discover any other of this part of the brewery and can only guess at what the rest of this area must have looked like. (Unfortunately the picture doesn't seem to have come out very well from being uploaded).

I re-scanned the picture of the Ale Loading Dock. Much better.
All the Best
