    Been wanting to get here for years, but for some reason only just got around to it! Most of the place is stripped bare, but my main interest was in the Clock and the associated workings (being made by Gent's of Leicester) Its all pretty smashed up now, but still pretty impressive to see. A little history...

    Terry's chocolate and confectionery maker in York had a history stretching back to 1767. In the 1920's the company bought a site at Bishopthorpe Road, York on which to develop a new factory known as Terry's Confectionery Works. Built in an Art Deco style, it included a distinct clock tower. Opened in 1926, new products including the Chocolate Apple (1926), Terry's Chocolate Orange (1931), and Terry's All Gold were all developed and produced onsite. In 1975 Terry's was acquired by United Biscuits, who then sold their entire confectionery division to Kraft Foods in 1993. In 2004, Kraft Foods decided to absorb Terry's, switch production of remaining products All Gold and Chocolate Orange to their own factories in Belgium, Sweden, Poland and Slovakia, and close the site in York. The factory finally closed on 30 September 2005, with the loss of 317 jobs.
