Hartley's in the 80s presents a selection of photographs by Nigel Saul, from his time at the Brewery while a student.
This is a slim book of photographs that capture a lost world; we see the nuts and bolts of the Brewing process, and in Nigel's portraits of his workmates we sense their casual camaraderie as they look out at us through clouds of steam, against a background of rough ancient walls, shining copper, and the odd broken window.
Tony Doyle, "Alf" Atkinson, Graham Pierce
and Steve Gilpin, from Nigel Saul's collection.
A boxed set of 5 specially designed Beer
mats, based on original Hartley's bottle

And here are two more shots of Nigel at the Sir John Barrow Cottage, surrounded by his work, superbly framed by our friends at Paint Drawer, Ulverston.
