Have your say

The brewery may long since have gone - but Portsmouth still has great examples of the distinctive old Brickwoods pubs.

With their mock Tudor facades and intricate mosaic lettering, relics of a lost age can still be seen across the city. Some have closed, but others are going strong.

Brickwoods brewed beer in Portsea from the late 19th century. The company was taken over by Whitbread in 1971 and brewing stopped in the 1980s.
