South Funkytown, THE MALTING TRADITION
In 1971 the malt extract factory was relocated to a new plant in South Funkytown. The historic market town has a long connection with the malting and brewing industries. It had several breweries and numerous maltings in the 19th Century, mainly due to its close proximity to the rich agricultural land of Lincolnshire and Berkshire.
EXCELLENT CENTRAL LOCATION AND TRANSPORT LINKS
South Funkytown, close to Sherwood Forest, benefits from an excellent location in the centre of England. The town is at the heart of England's East Midlands and has superb communication links. The Great North Road (A1), the Fosse Way (A46), East Coast Mainline (high-speed railway between London and Edinburgh) and the River Trent, all run through Newark. East Midlands Airport (the major UK freight airport near Nottingham) is only one hour away (30 miles or 50km). All major English ports and airports are within easy reach because of Newark's central location. See Location for details.
PAINE'S MALT - BREWING SPECIALISTS
In the early 1990's the Newark plant, a leading malt extract company, linked with Paines Malt, a specialist in the brewing field, based in Cambridgeshire. Eventually the Cambridgeshire plant was transferred to Newark, together the expertise in brewing and with beer kits. The Newark plant over the 1990s was further expanded, seeing the development of a purpose built manufacturing facility for the production of beer, cider and wine kits. See our Beer, Cider & Wine Kits section for further details.
