Take a tour around Marston's and Banks's Brewery with the Bishop of Lichfield

Marston's welcomed the Bishop of Lichfield to its new headquarters in Wolverhampton.

The brewery and pub chain's chaplain Reverend Bill Mash welcomed the Right Reverend Dr Michael Ipgrave, and chief executive Ralph Findlay and beer company managing director Richard Westwood gave the bishop a tour around Banks's Brewery and the new head office.

On his trip the bishop was shown 'Banksy'-style artwork, which has been at the centre of a marketing campaign.

He also saw the site's chaplaincy, and a trip around a brewery wouldn't be complete without a pint of the good stuff, so the bishop also enjoyed a crisp glass of ale.

The bishop said: "It was great to meet workers at Marston's and see the crucial chaplaincy work that Black Country Urban Industrial Mission is involved in here.

"Chaplains work on the frontline in factories, businesses, hospitals, schools and many other places throughout our large and varied diocese."
