    Visited with KooK following some early morning shenanigans, which included contemplating potential serious injury as access to one site and some serious Heras hilarity.

    Terry's, as everyone will know and appreciate, made orangey chocolate cricket balls and other assorted archaic sweets like peppermint creams
    and "All Gold" that you'd buy as a gift for people you didn't like that much. Some History of the company here

    The site has been closed since 2005, when the rising price of sugar drove production overseas. Our main target was the clock tower, to which we found access tightly sealed.
    The remainder of the buildings are stripped, however the view from the roof of the main mill block was well worth all the fucking about that preceded it.

    The site as a whole is about to undergo total re-development with the larger listed buildings being assigned for commercial use and the remainder of the site masterplanned out as boring developer noddy boxes - scheme layout here

    Here are some photos.

    There was a lot of this: Big emptiness.

    Lots of nice tiling and crunchy parquet remained in the Mill building.

    Special thanks to The Ebor pub in Bishopthorpe for some delicious fish and chips, rounding off a nice day out.

    Cheers for having a look :thumb
