    Visited with Oxygen Theif.
    Very stripped as a factory but the building is very nice especially the attics/roof space. When we arrived we could see 2 flat bed trucks in the grounds of the factory and hear metal being cut. Luckly we did not bump into anyone.

    In its heyday Elizabeth Shaw employed more than 2,500 people.
    The business was started in Bristol in 1881 trading under the name of HJ Packer.
    Packer had previously worked for Fry's of Bristol. He began making chocolate in a house at 46, Armoury Square, Stapleton Road under the name of Packer & Co.
    By 1901 the company had grown to such an extent that a new factory was commissioned at Greenbank in the Easton area of Bristol.
    The factory was built to the most modern standards of the day and included one of the very first sprinkler systems installed in a confectionery plant in Europe.
