    At some silly time in the morning, Myself and HiddenShadow began our day out in Yorkshire. The first site was Hickson & Welch, but unfortunately, it didn't quite go to plan due to some security men. Ah well, you can't win them all.

    Next on the list was Terry's of York...

    After seeing numerous reports of this place pop up over the last few weeks, I was rather looking forward to this.
    The factory dominates the landscapes for miles. Even when we were a couple of miles away on the motorway, we could see the tower. I'd be sat up there in a couple of hours is all I could think about!

    History -

    Terry's was a chocolate and confectionery maker in York, England. Its history stretched back to 1823, but in 1993 it was taken over by Kraft Foods. The York factory closed in 2005 and Terry's products are now produced in other Kraft facilities in Poland, Sweden, Belgium, and Slovakia.
    Joseph Terry became a partner in the confectionery business of Robert Berry in 1823. Robert Berry died and his son left the business in 1828. Joseph Terry then was left to expand the business before his death in 1850. The business was further developed by his son, Joseph Terry junior. Joseph Terry and Sons moved to the current site at South Bank in 1926. Terry’s was taken over by Kraft in 1993. They closed the York factory on 30 September 2005.
    Now called The Chocolate Works, development company Grantside Ltd has consulted local people on how to develop the site. A previous bid by the company to develop the site was rejected by the City of York Council. However, on 3 February 2010 the current planning application was accepted and the site will be developed with a mix of residential, commercial and leisure.

    After finding a way in, and working our way upwards on one side of the factory, I noticed wet footprints. This meant someone had been in here recently, within minutes we saw figures moving about and pictures being set up, so off we went.

    It turns out that Tassadar, Thestig, Nic81 and tcake had the same idea, to spend their sunday wandering around Terry's, It was good to meet you guys! After 10 minutes of chatting we decided to go our seperate ways.

    Anyhow, I spent a couple of hours wandering around the factory, it's rooftops and it's clocktower and had some laughs with HiddenShadow! Big Up!










    Thanks for looking,
