The local community pub, The Antwerp Arms in Church Street. As you can see, a welcome refreshment end to the walk.

Start at Seven Sisters Tube

Walk North up the High Road to Pelham Street

Turn left into Pelham Street

Turn right into Portland Road

Facing you are the front gates of the Imperial Lager Brewery Ltd. Admittedly these are all that is left but walking into the housing estate will give you a feeling of the vast size of the enterprise. Also note the proximity of the railway line to which the brewery was connected. One assumes by pneumatic lift.

Return to the High Road and head up to Bruce Grove Station. Second up the high road after the main junction turn left into a short alleyway then follow this through the gate to the right. The building is the restored brewery of Wooldridge & Co. Ltd. Note the difference between the derelict building and the restoration. so easily it could have been flattened.

Return to the High Road and head up the road until you reach Cedar Road on your left. On the opposite side of the High Road is the Whitbread clock. These are the remains of Gripper Brothers.

Continue up to the junction with White Hart Lane itself and turn left. 100 yards don are the scant remains of a Fremlins Ltd depot.

Retire to the Antwerp Arms and enjoy a pint of Redemption Ales, you've earned it!!!
