Makeover for Dorset brewery


12:04am 29th July 2012

An iconic building in Bridport's getting a special makeover.

Palmers has the only thatched roof brewery in the UK, and two of the same team that worked on it 35 years ago are back on the roof doing the job again.

Ian Hobday from Cattistock and his team are spending the next few weeks replacing the original reed with another  2000 bundles of fresh reeds.
