Potton is a
townin Bedfordshire, England. Although it was largely destroyed by fire in 1783, some historic buildings survived, including the thirteenth century parish church, St Mary's. Historically, the town was home to a renowned horse fair.
Joel Beckett, most notable for his role as Jake Moonin EastEnders, was born at Potton in 1973.
The Potton Brewery Company
Potton had its own
breweryup until 1922 when it was bought by the Bedfordbrewery of Newland & Nash. This company subsequently closed the brewery in Potton and sold the site to the Co-operative Society. The original buildings have remained intact to the present day.
In 1998 brewing returned to Potton when the current
Potton Brewery Companywas started by Bob Hearsonand Clive Towner. The plan was to start up in the original brewery buildings, but modern planning regulations made this impossible. A unit on a small industrial estate opposite the old Potton Railway Stationwas taken instead.
Langenlonsheim, ( Germany); established for over 10 years.
