The Fabrick Ashover rock beer
A Simcoe hopped golden ale
Session golden ale with a soft fruity flavour, full mouthfeel and a crisp finish
This beer is named after ‘The Fabrick’ or ‘Ashover Rock’ a gritstone boulder based to the east of Ashover village. The Fabrick sits on an area of heathland 299 metres above sea level there are 6 stiles, 3 gates and several sets of steps as well as asteep incline to the rock. It is the highest viewpoint for a considerable distance, and the majority of the landscape east of this point to the coast is lower. Consequently, on a clear day, views can be seen of nearby Chesterfield with its Crooked Spire, Bolsover Castle, Hardwick Hall, some suburbs of the South Yorkshire city of Sheffield, the surrounding counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire.
Next to The Fabrick is a disused Royal Observer Corps monitoring station, which was abandoned in 1991. However, it is opened up occasionally by enthusiasts. For many years, The Fabrick was privately owned by the “Bassett” sisters who were descendants of the family known for creating “Bassetts Liquorice Allsorts”, but in 2006 was donated to Derbyshire County Council. In the Victorian period, there was a stone folly on the top of the Fabrick, no trace of which remains.
