The Burton Brewery at the turn of the century.

The brewery was originally established by Mr George Ellis who was later to become a mayor of Hastings. It was located with an excellent access to water from two wells on site which are still in use today. “In 1908 the analysis of the water showed its chemical qualities to be specially adapted for the manufacture of beverages.”
