Clancy Working with Charles Wells on New Brewery in Bedford
Article posted on: 26th March 2018
Charles Wells has submitted a planning application for a £13m scheme in Bedford, to include a new 30,000 hectolitre brewery, visitor centre and on-site pub, to be located at Fairhill, off the A6 in Bedford.
Clancy Consulting have been working with the client and their design team, providing mechanical and electrical engineering design services.
Charles Wells commercial director Peter Wells said, “As a business Bedford has been our home for over 140 years, and many members of the Wells family have lived and grown up here. Building this brewery in our home town maintains our heritage but gives us an opportunity to further develop our story and create exciting, new beers and experiences that will continue to support our loyal pub partners and their customers.”
The location is also above the Bedford Oolite aquifer, which was tapped by brewery founder Charles Wells, and the company has been using water from that well in the production of its beers since 1902.
Construction could start as early as Summer 2018, aiming to open by late Summer 2019.
Clancy Consulting Director, Mike Powers, commented, “We are delighted to be working with Charles Wells and their team on this exciting new project for the region”.
