I am writing on behalf of the editor and author of a new book entitled Britain’s Lost Breweries, published by Aurum Press and written by Chris Arnot. I am currently in the process of obtaining the rights to the photographs to be included in the book and we would like to use some of the images from your blog in the book.
The photograph we would like to use is of the Hardys and Hansons brewery: IMG 8324 of the HH logo of two men attached to the brewery front. I may also be interested in some of the Bass Brewery.
I am ideally looking to source the highest resolution images possible, would you by any chance have any of the original photos?
Perhaps you could let me know whether it might be possible to use these images in the book and the permission situation regarding it. We will of course credit any contribution you might make to the publication.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,
Assistant, Aurum Press

Hi, I was wondering can anyone access these building. I want to go in for my a level photography project is this allowed?
This is my understanding of the law as it is. Accessing these building is not illegal as long as you do not steal anything or break your way in. Trespassing is a civil offence, so the police cannot even move you on without a court order. By tresspassing you to however open yourself up to a civil case from the land owner, however this is very unlikly and you shouldn’t have a problem if you explain why you are there and respect the building/the land owners requests.
This was the site I would always come too before I decided to create my own, http://www.urbangoonies.co.uk
I don’t have many members at the minute and i’m struggling for ideas on how to build the community within the forum.
Please would you add our page to your list of links or give us a mention on your site.

My name’s Danny and i’m making a radio programme based around underground and rarely explored places. I found your website and the work you have done is exactly what we’re looking for and if you’re free at any point today, I’m wondering if you’d be able to give a telephone interview for us. Myself and my group would highly appreciate it and we’d be publicising your work on our University radio station aswell as twitter. Please get back to me as soon as possible, Again I’ll be highly grateful. Thank you.
Great website and amazing pics 🙂
Unbelievably valuable work you are doing here. Your photographs are absolutely fascinating capturing bygone ages before they disappear forever. Am all for progress but the word means nothing unless we know what we have progressed from. Too much of this stuff gets lists before we realise it’s missing. Stunning, stunning stuff.
