    Thumbs up Tolly Cobbold Brewery


    Myself, Fieldym, Lightbuoy and Kongzi all decided on a trip to the Tolly Cobbold brewery in Ipswich!

    Information about the site is as follows:
    In 2002 Tolly Cobbold became part of Ridley's and the Cliff Brewery in Ipswich closed ending 256 years of brewing at that site. The company itself claims a history dating back to 1723.

    So we walked around for a bit and checked out some outer buildings slightly upset by being unable to get into the main building, then Kongzi and Fieldym made a daring roof top climb and a slightly comedy entrace through a door in the roof and we were all in!

    Anyway on with the picture!

    The Beer Stash!


    Huge promo bottle of Tolly Cobbold


    Found this logo painted onto the wall down in the basement.




    Ah something i've always known! :)


    Its a pretty good explore with all the little out buildings and the main building is pretty good.

    The main building is fairly large in itself and has many different floors taking you right up to the roof, one of the vat rooms has all blue windows which is pretty cool.

    All in all i'd say the place is a good explore and its definatly worth getting down there if you get the chance :)

    What a great explore! Any more pics?
    Love the sound of the blue-windowed room. That logo on the wall is great & in the stash pic it looks as though they'd kept one of every kind of beer they'd ever produced. Amazing find. :D
    Oh yes, I agree, beer is best!

    Looks great. But what makes it a "comedy" entrance?

    We tried every door possible to get into this place, every window, at one point lightbuoy was going to go down a drain.

    Were about to leave and fieldym and kongzi go up this rickety ladder above the security hut, across some dodgy roofing and down another slightly dodgy ladder.

    Fieldy walks upto probably the only remaining un-tried door door and it opens.

    I figure its always like that tho, always the last place you try. Still saved lightbuoy a trip down the drain!
