A BREWERY is launching a series of ales to bottle the memory of some historic characters.

Wall’s Brewery, in Northallerton, said it will toast Thirsk-born 18th century professional cricketer Thomas Lord, the father of flight and Scarborough MP Sir George Cayley with full-bodied brews.

The series has started with Longevity, a milk stout in tribute to Henry Jenkins, of Ellerton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire, who claimed to be 169 years old before he died in 1670.
