Marston's flood-damaged Jennings brewery in Cockermouth is due to re-open on schedule within the "next few weeks" despite the severe weather conditions.

The property has been cleared of the water, mud and silt washed in by the flood of 18 November. Machinery is now being cleaned and repaired where necessary.

Jennings was able to meet demand over the Christmas period by using its sister breweries in Marston's.

Marston's pubs the Bush Inn and Hunters on Main Street were among the worst-damaged in the town and are expected to have re-opened by Easter.

"Plans for the refurbishment are being discussed with the licensees this week, with work due to start imminently," said a Marston's spokesman.

Marston's other two pubs in the area, the Wheatsheaf in Lorton and the Tythe Barn in Cockermouth, re-opened on 18 December.
