Administrative/Biographical history:

Dales Brewery was located on Gwydir Street in Cambridge. The first brewery on this site was recorded in 1874 as the Gwydir Brewery and Frederick Dale of Dale and Company Limited opened the current building in 1902. The Brewery went on to win the Gold Cup at the Brewers International Exhibition in 1911 and represented the award on their labels for many years afterwards. The Brewery was acquired by Whitbread and Company in 1955 and ceased brewing in 1958. It was used as a store and depot until 1966 when it was sold to Cambridge City Council. The building has since been used as a community centre, a photographic studio and exhibition area, and more recently for commercial storage.
