    As far as I can tell Hicksons was where they made Amaretto, Marzipan, and maybe those hard but dippable biscotti things, it smells so Almondy it's untrue, and I think that might not be a good thing....

    From what I've found online Hicsons were pretty bad at chemistry, favouring spectacular deadly explosive events rather than nice safe and profitable. It's probably for the best this place closed.

    Environmental cleanup seems low on the agenda here too and like another similar explore at Coalite this place has a lot of things that don't look like Mr Environment Agency would approve...

    Visited with dweeb (smelling of roses), turk (smelling of beer bottles) and laura (smelling of dubstep).

    Laura failed very early:

    This smelled awesome, AND gave me real life 10-20 Wangle vision. Legendary!

    Proper Northern Confectionary - In the good old days they were made from coal dust (and not made by Haribo).
