    Default Hartford End Ridleys Brewery 2012


    Ridley's Brewery was founded in 1842, and was located in Hartford End, Essex. In August 2002 the company bought out the Tolly Cobbold brewery. Then, in 2005 Ridley's was bought by Greene King and dismantled.

    Ridley's was officially T. D. Ridley & Sons Ltd. It started as a water mill at Hartford End and from that it developed a flour milling business in Chelmsford, two maltings, also in Chelmsford, and the brewery which stayed at Hartford End

    Nice one. I want to see this place and went yesterday but failed to find a way in. I'll have to go again and try harder...
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
