150 years of the Plough Brewery Clapham SW8

2018 is the 15th anniversary of the opening of the building known as The Plough Brewery. The new building was opened on the 3rd February 1868 by master brewer Thomas Woodward.

In 1868 London was the biggest city on earth at the centre of the biggest trading nation in the world but the average life expectancy of a Londoner was only 20 years.

It is also the 50th anniversary of when Marston Properties purchased the brewery buildings. In 1968 the buildings were in a very sorry state and only three years later the building was under threat of demolition by the local council.
