William and Lewis Toomes, Stonehenge Inn, 2 Stonehenge Road, Durrington, Wiltshire


The Stonehenge Inn incorporated the Crossroads Brewery from about 1875.

In about 1917 it was bought by Portsmouth (later Portsmouth & Brighton) United Breweries, who rebuilt the pub.

Portsmouth & Brighton United had a depot there until about 1981. The brewery building is still there and in the wall in white tiles (not painted) it says 'PORTSMOUTH UNITED BREWERIES LTD'.
