The Brewery Tap

The above picture of The Brewery Tap which stands in West End.
The original picture that was taken from Duxford Diaries, which gave us the idea to   recreate the picture as it was, along with kind permission of the Barber's
who now own the property and to Billy Kelly for allowing us to use an original
1940's Jeep.
(we are still looking for an old rusty bike to make the picture complete)
