  • Derek Gilford is my dad with Gordon Jervis using the spirit level, attention to detail.
    There is a tunnel that runs under Great Central Rd which ran from one side of the brewery to the other part of the brewery across the road.
    Apparently the brewery used fresh water from the well, hence why Mansfield beer was the best.

  • Hi Paul Cartwright,
    Gordon Jervis was my dad, it would be lovely to hear your memories of him.
    And of course anyone else that knew him.
    I remember a lot of these people in the photos.

  • Picture right hand side, row 10, shows lorry drivers all stood by side of tanker lorry. My dad is stood on far left (Lawrence Worrall, nickname ‘Lol’) he’s looking at Les Yates who is stood next to Alf Tattage? or something like that.
    Lol was taken off lorries in around 1984 following a heart attack. He returned to work driving the Mini vans on tank cleaning in the pubs prior to the tankers delivering beer. Sadly he had to retire in 1989 due to ill health, and he died in 1991.
