Abandoned Sydney Brewery

Another excursion out to an abandoned place, only this time we ran into a little bit of trouble, bit scary but it serves me right for going to these places, I just cant help appreciating history.
A bit of info on this place:
The Maltings at Mittagong were managed by three brothers Ernest, Clarrie and Arthur Jones. Their Father Henry was also the original manager of the Maltings from 1905 until his death in 1928. The Jones family had a combined service to Tooth and Co of well over 150 years. Mittagong Maltings had a considerable land holding, although much of the land was sold for a peppercorn to an adjacent girls school. Mittagong Maltings had three separate buildings, one destroyed by a fire in 1965. The other two are now abandoned, having closed in 1981. The Mittagong Maltings is in a state of disrepair and has been considerably vandalised. Waverley Brewery and the Blue Bow site have been redeveloped as housing.

    “Another excursion out to an abandoned place, only this time we ran into a little bit of trouble, bit scary but it serves me right for going to these places…”

    By “a little bit of trouble”, did you mean being told to leave the brewery or was it just a difficult trek inside?

    Keep up the great work on this blog!
