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.

Founded in 1847 although brewing had been taking place at what is now the brewery tap, The Ship & Bell, for some time before that. A larger brewery was built behind the pub by 1869. In 1896 the brewery was sold but is still owned by the family that brought the brewery. Taken over by Fullers in November 2005, the brewery closed at the end of March 2006 with all production being transferred to Fullers.

Now the largest independent cask brewer in the UK, this brewery started with the merger of E Greene & Sons and F W King & Sons in 1887. The new merged brewery was based at the Greene site where brewing had been going on since 1806. Over the years a number of breweries have been taken over. Recently Morland and Ruddles beers have been acquired and are brewed here along side the Greene King range. In July 2005 they took over Ridleys and Belhaven later in the same year. Took over Hardy & Hanson's in September 2006.
