    Designed in 1925 by architect Louis de Soissons the concrete and glass building had been making cereals since 1926. The building was given a grade II listed status in 1981. one of the most striking features is the large tubular building at one end of the site. The Factory closed its doors for the last time in 2008, Welwyn Garden City hasnt smelt the same since!

    The site is now owned by Tesco who want to turn it into a megastore but this has been met with major protests from locals and a failure to gain planning permission means the place now just sits there derelict.

    Always thought it looks quite bland inside but it seems to be maturing nicely. Great photos.
