1977 Royal Silver Jubilee - Queen Elizabeth II
In 1977 The Queen's Silver Jubilee was marked with celebrations at every level throughout the country and Commonwealth.

The actual anniversary of The Queen's accession on 6 February 1952 was commemorated in church services throughout that month. The Queen spent the anniversary weekend at Windsor with her family and the full jubilee celebrations began in the summer of 1977.

On 4 May at the Palace of Westminster both Houses of Parliament presented loyal addresses to The Queen, who in her reply stressed that the keynote of the jubilee was to be the unity of the nation.

The climax of the national celebrations came in early June. On the evening of Monday 6 June, The Queen lit a bonfire beacon at Windsor which started a chain of beacons across the country. On Tuesday 7 June, vast crowds saw The Queen drive in the Gold State Coach to St Paul's Cathedral for a Service of Thanksgiving attended by heads of state from around the world and former prime ministers of the UK.

Brewing started on this site in 1792 and was taken over by Josuha Tetley in 1822. In 1960 they merged with Walker Cains to form Tetley Walker and in 1961 became the main cask ale brewery for Allied Brewers. Now owned by Carlsberg Tetley, this brewery, the worlds largest producer of cask ale, now brews a number of brands, both for Carlsberg Tetley and other former brewers and pub chains.

Shropshire Brewery producing traditional, cask conditioned real ales using the finest ingredients

The small market town of Bishop’s Castle, on the Shropshire/Welsh border, is home to the Three Tuns Brewery, a brewery with significant claims to fame.

A brewing licence at the site was first granted in 1642. Part of the existing brewery is of 17th Century origin, and this would be consistent with it having been the original brewhouse, which would make it, the oldest working brewery premises in Britain.

The remainder of the present brewery consists of a tower erected in about 1888. Tower breweries were a product of Victorian ingenuity; the movement of liquids through the brewing vessels could easily be achieved if the main ingredients, malt and water, were winched and pumped to the top of a tower so that gravity could achieve all the transfers needed during the brewing process.

Although some of the modern technology departs from the original gravity concept, the tower at the Three Tuns Brewery is a classic, miniature Victorian tower which, together with the older building, is described in its Grade Two listing as “a rare survival of a small, working rural brewery”.

The Three Tuns is renowned to cask beer lovers world-wide; many confess to visiting the town purely to see the brewery and sample the beer.

At the advent of the ‘Campaign for Real Ale’ in the 1970s, the Three Tuns Brewery, with the adjacent Three Tuns Inn, was one of only four home-brew pubs operating in the whole of Britain. Its survival can be attributed to the custodianship of the John Roberts family, who bought the pub and brewery sometime in the 1880s, and who built the tower. His son, Erskine Roberts, and his grandson, John Roberts, continued brewing into the mid-1970s.

For several years the future of the Three Tuns brewery had appeared uncertain, following periods of closure. The investment required to bring it up to modern standards had made its viability questionable. In July 2002 a plan was published to convert it to housing.

In January 2003 the brewery was bought by the John Roberts’ Brewing Co.Ltd., the name of which celebrates the brewery’s historic association, over about a century, with the Roberts family. The brewery has been fully re-furbished which should ensure its brewing future for many years to come.
