Cooperage, Springfield Brewery, Wolverhampton, West Midlands
The art of making barrels for storing liquids dates back to the Iron Age people of Europe. In this brewery a section is set aside for making and filling barrels with beer. In the background is the one of the cooling chimneys for the brewery. This brewery was built in 1873, for William Butler, as a self-contained site with maltings, brewhouse, stables and offices.
