Leadmill Brewery, Park Hall Road, Denby, Derbyshire, DE5 8PX
tel: (01332) 883577 website
This brewery was started in a converted pig-sty at Selston, Notts and moved to the current site in the stable block of Park Hall farm in late 2001.The brewery has the feel of a Belgian Brasserie Artisanale. The brewer is Richard Creighton, formerly a teapot maker at the nearby Denby Pottery, although all members of the family have to pitch in with help and support. Sister Tracy also does some of the brewing. They have a few hops growing in old casks, not flourishing enough to flavour the beers but enough to add atmosphere. Another of the units in the stable block is now the Old Stables Bar open Friday evenings 17.00-23.00, Saturday 12.00-23.00, Sunday 12.00-22.30, with a fine rank of handpumps serving the current range plus a few guest beers, with traditional sawdust on the floor! The brewery also has two tied houses, the Old Oak Inn at Horsley Woodhouse and their latest, the King William IV at Milford where the beer is served through antique brass bath taps.
