Kirkstall Brewery consists of several Grade II listed buildings. These buildings are situated on either side of the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. On one of the buildings on the west side of the canal (The Warehouse) it is possible to see the doors just above the water level that were used to load barrels of beer onto barges. The Kirkstall Brewery Co Ltd was registered in 1871, and by 1898 the brewery was producing around 72,000 barrels of beer a year. The beer was sold in Leeds, Yorkshire and beyond. The brewery was closed in 1983, bringing to an end a 150-year tradition of brewing in the Kirkstall Valley. Kirkstall Brewery stood empty and unused for several years until it was given a new lease of life in the late 1990s with an ambitious project to create Kirkstall Brewery Student Village. A new brewery with the same name has been set up close to the original site.

    Beautiful framing Colin , did you manage a swift half on your way past.

  • Thanks Mark. It was more of a leisurely pint, there is a very nice pub just down the road, it would have been rude not to.

    Great 3D effect, Colin! I feel that I am standing under the arch as I look.You have dealt expertly with the tricky light, too.

  • Thank you very much Bette. Especially appreciate the comment about the light, it was a pig to get right.
