showell's brewery

Whilst researching my family history (Thomas Showell was my 4x great grandfather) I came across some info about Showell's Brewery which may be of interest to forum members (crown case and prosecution). Cannot attach to this message - any ideas please?

Hi Katrina. Can you take a photo of the report and post it as a photo (or photos) perhaps? Viv.

You may have seen this for sale on eBay Katrina. But if not it's a 2 page £100 Showell's debenture of 1898. Viv.

This is a newspaper cutting from 1904 with transcript. Maybe this is the court case you're referring to Katrina? Be interesting to see the details if you can find a way of posting them. Viv

Showells Brewery was at Langley Green, and their offices still stand near the railway level crossing. Their maltings were later taken over by Banks and in more recent times gutted by serious fires. They had depots in Birmingham and at one time sent beer by canal.

Hi, thank you for the info about the brewery. I have been so busy with work lately I haven't had time to any research................. Must take a potter over to Langley Green to have a look.
