Hopped beer was imported to England from the Netherlands as early as 1400 in Winchester, and hops were being planted on the island by 1428. The popularity of hops was at first mixed the Brewers Company of London went so far as to state quot;no hops, herbs, or other like thing be put into any ale or liquore wherof ale shall be made but only liquor (water), malt, and yeast.quot; However, by the 16th century, quot;alequot; had come to refer to any strong beer, and all ales and beers were hopped. 11.

Travel London is the sister company of Travel West Midlands and Travel Dundee. Following the acquisitions of Limebourne, Connex Bus, Tellings-Golden Miller, Wings Buses and Link- Line, Travel London had a wide operating area within Greater London and Surrey. The company operated contracts on behalf of Transport for London (TfL), Surrey County Council, and Kingston University. Operations are split between three registered companies. 12. Britain is strewn with ruins of castles, rubble from the centuries of her existence. Castles are tangible relics of a remarkable past, a lengthy heritage etched in stone, as well as with the blood and sweat of those who built, labored, fought, and died in their shadow. Ruins stir up in us a profound awareness of those past lives. Castles have a timelessness that is awe-inspiring. That they have endured centuries of warfare and the effects of weather is a testimony to the creativity and power of their medieval owners. How many of us will have such long-lasting success? Castles Unlimited was formed in recognition of the necessity to preserve these relics of history. We are dedicated to the promotion and study of British Castles. Our goals are educating and stimulating people to explore the castles for themselves. We hope you will become involved in the preservation of these wonderful structures. We offer several services and information which may be of interest to you. 13. Ritz Hotel Famed Swiss hotelier Csar Ritz opened the hotelon May 24, 1906.
