A comprehensive history of this Bridport brewery built in 1794 by the Gundry family (who had been brewing in Bridport since the early 18th century) and acquired by Palmers in 1895.

These early times and the subsequent vicissitudes of the 20th century are well described right through to the 1990s - and still a thriving family business.

Some excellent illustrations - bottle labels, adverts, staff,the war years, brewing scenes past & present, Bridport pubs, brewery drays, pub signs etc plus a detailed family tree from 1775 to 2007.
