  • Can you help was their ever a brewery on Knollbeck Lane Brampton Bierlow Barnsley South Yorkshire as I believe my house was the brewery

  • South Yorkshire Stingo by David Lloyd Parry has a brief entry on Brampton Bierlow which states the following:
    Bull’s Head
    James Ashton was publican-brewer here in 1879.

    I’m currently working with Rotherham licensing records from around that period so will have a look to see whether there is any supporting or contradictory information in there.

  • … and the licensing records rather discredit there having been a Bull’s Head brewery on Knollbeck Lane in 1879 (perhaps a typo on the year?). Still a lot of investigating to do, but at the moment I’d wager that if there ever was a brewery producing beer on that stretch of road it had ceased operations by 1866 at the very lastest.
