Brewer's group

October 11, 1996

While many former students feel their entire first year was spent in a brewery, for 1,000 starting at Leeds University this year it will be true.

The former Kirkstall Brewery has been converted into 186 student flats, a sports hall and bar.

In the course of restoring the site, workmen discovered 20 tons of old bottle tops, and a submarine engine used as a standby generator. Restoration workers of the 21st century will no doubt turn up 40 tonnes of old bottle tops, and a traffic cone.
