From publicans to brewers - a Mellor family tale

There's nothing like an anniversary to start you reminiscing, so here is some information about the history of Wold Top and Hunmanby Grange Farm: The Mellor family, current owners of Hunmanby Grange Farm, the location of Wold Top Brewery, will have been farming and working the land here for 78 years this year.The family moved here in 1945, after the war ended for a new start and new lifestyle.
