The Cannon Brewery, Newport Pagnell

In collecting old local bottles, it became apparent to Paul Cox – who compiles the Woburn Sands Collection website – that those marked “E. L Warman, Newport Pagnell” were some of the rarest and hardest to find. He only ran the Cannon Brewery in the town for just over three years, so Paul decided to find out what he could about where he had come from, his time in charge and what happened to him afterwards.

Paul wasn’t expecting to find very much … but he did. So next time you are having a drink in The Cannon, do raise a glass to Edgar.
