    The Explore
    This is another of those explores that I've put off for one reason or another time after time.. had some free time and thought I should get up there and have a look.. what a strange and colourful explore this one was...

    Big thanks to @Lancashire lad for the tips :)

    The History
    The original factory was located at kirks mill being converted from a cotton mill into a furniture manufacturer in 1886 they stayed at kirks mill until 1949 when they built a new factory across the road and this became the main production centre for hj berry and sons until 2010 when creditors moved in and backed administrators into closing the long standing bisuness , the original mill was powered by a 32 foot water wheel which stayed spinning until the company moved into its new factory.

    That's horrendous!!! Machines should be grey or blue... possibly a light green but that's it!!

    Obviously somebody had been watching Charlie and the chocolate factory a little too much!
