A quick history

Ware has a fascinating history, stretching right back to the Roman Era and beyond. The town grew up around the Roman road connecting London with Lincoln, known as Ermine Street, and later became a coaching and brewing town thanks to the river which was used to transport barley in and beer out of the town.

Ware eventually became the main supplier of malt to London, and by 1880 the town had 140 malt houses. The brewing industry peaked in the 19th century, and since then Ware has become central to the pharmaceutical industry, as well as being a commuter town for London.
