Restoration of historic brewery gates was a labour of love for engineering firm in 1997
 

A gateway to Burton's past was unveiled during the summer of 1997. The wrought and cast iron gates which originally stood at the entrance to the 'number two' Bass car park – which is now the home of Sainsbury's – were resited at the Union Street entrance.
The gates had been removed by Westmid Engineering at the Rose Hill Works in Woodville and were given a spruce-up.
Contracts manager Mick Smith said the project – commissioned by Sainsbury's – was a labour of love for the engineers who had to recast the patterns on the gates and halt the corrosion.
