The picture of the week has made me make a very early New Year resolution and that is once I've finished the current project - another micro layout on a door- I will viciously attack cardboard and plastic in a desperate attempt to build a model of that magnificent brewery that rightly deserved 'Picture Of The Week' - providing I live that long  enough of course!!.

Anyway, whether I do or I don't, it'll be in O Gauge and if that isn't Irish, then tell me what is !


Cheers.


Allan

Hi Allan,

You're a brave man. Looking forward to the results. I'll probably pay a visit in February, camera and yard stick in hand.

Nigel

Hi Allan

I have long admired your work.....please start soon.....I am sure to pick up some useful ideas :lol:

The photo is from Wikipedia. Nigel (BCDR) pointed me towards Hook Norton when I was trying to gain some understanding of the sequence of brewing processes. I am enjoying using this and other photos as a guide when kitbashing assorted Scalescene print outs for a brewery on my coarse gauge layout Granby.

Best wishes

John

Hi Allan,

Friend of mine visited the Brewery recently and sent me a beer mat (beer would have been nice). The courtyard shown in the illustrations is an illusion, in reality the neighboring houses make it all very tight. Just enough room for the lorries/wagons to squeeze through.

Nigel

Thanks Nigel.

I don't suppose there's any kind of plans or drawings available of the brewery ?


Cheers.


Allan.

Have a look at this:  https://www.google.ca/search?q=hook+norton+brewery&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&dcr=0&ei=DxE9WujvCNGD_QaMi4KgCw

Lots of photos that you may be able to use to infer the dimensions. :hmm

Indeed it is.

The buildings are so complex that the " official" view that I posted can give an incorrect impression of the roof lines and relationship of the subsidiary buildings to the tower.

Nigel posted on Granby an artists impression circa 1900 which gave me the best idea of the buildings relationship but then I am only aiming for something "after the school of" rather than a precise model.

One thing that confuses me is the wall that goes to the very top of the grist mill tower is not duplicated on the other side......there the water tank is exposed as in the front.........anyone any idea why this is? My initial reaction is to ignore it and plonk the tank on top of the tower with all sides exposed and then add the roof on top with some supporting pillars.

 Without plans, or even leading dimensions, I'm sure you're right, John. At best all we can do is  build 'something like it'

Just so Allan, your impression of the building will be excellent.  I dare say you'll work your usual miracles.

:cheers

John

Many thanks for all the info, guys. Without you're help I doubt very much that my model will have the slightest resemblance - mind you, it still might not !

Anyway, I aim to start it sometime in February in the new year - if this new treatment holds out !


All the best to you and a very merry Christmas to all.


Allan

Merry Christmas to you too, Allan, and good luck with the treatment.

Seems to me that this would be exactly your kind of building and I for one would love to see you model it.

Regards,

David V.
