A brewery that boasts of being Britain's oldest is even older than it thought.
Shepherd Neame, of Faversham, Kent, has made great play of the fact that beer has been brewed at the same site since 1698. But today, when it reopens its visitor centre after a £350,000 revamp, John Owen, a local historian and the brewery's archivist, will reveal that there has been brewing there since at least 1573. The company is now rewriting its history.
