    Visited with the Woodland and a friend from home as part of a weekend's exploring in York. The Terry's factory site dates back to 1926, although Terry's had been an established name in York since Joseph Terry became a partner in the confectionery business of Robert Berry in 1823. The company was bought by Kraft in 1993 and closed in 2005. Today, the whole site is mostly stripped, although there are still good views to be had from the main factory building roof and that of the gorgeous and unique clock tower. I decided this was worth a post of its own as several people have mentioned access being nearly impossible recently. It took us a good while and several different attempts but we managed it, and it was exceptionally satisfying to have a smoke and a drink up the top, admiring the view.

    It may also be worth mentioning that service tunnels run extensively underneath the Terry's site, including from the main factory building to the clock tower basement, although the ladder up is missing far too many rungs to climb. I will be investigating these in the near future!

    On another note, this site provides a lot of good information about the future of the site: http://www.thechocolateworks.net/
