At the heart of the sleepy historic village of Southwick in South Hampshire stands the scheduled ancient monument that is Southwick Brewhouse.
This early Victorian brewery last saw active service in 1957 when master brewer Dick Olding hung up his keys on the hook for the last time at the ripe old age of 81. It was he who crafted the ales to supply The Golden Lion public house next door where General Eissenhower and Montgomery took sustenance as they planned the D-Day landings in 1944.
