Bardney sugar was one of several sites owned by British sugar, producing sugar under the name silver spoon. The site was originally opened in 1927 and was called the Lincolnshire Beet Sugar company. Processing beet at this plant was done here. Delivery of the beet from the local fields was done by train. British sugar bought plants around the country. Mostly on the east it seems, I think they had eighteen sites in total. The company went through ups and downs through out the years. It was part owned by the government for many years who owned a large percentage at 36% which was reduced to 24%. It was bought by Associated British Foods in 1991. British sugar started cutting the sites back dramatically and Bardney along with Ipswich were shut in 2001. The site is still live as a packaging site for British sugar, and there is now a Ryvita there that was built in 2018.
After missing out on the Ipswich plant just seeing the concrete storage silos. Seeing some pics of this pop up we was not going to miss out on this one. Like many others I thought this was long gone now, should have learnt not to assume anything. But good on terminal decline for not assuming. I am glad we went to see it though, luckily everything was still intact and all the machinery was still there. The upper level had the most to see. The
decay up here was nice. The glass blocks really did it for me as well. This was a nice relaxed explore for me and man gone wrong on a very windy morning.

Green mould on the machinery gives it that really decayed feeling

Good report dude. Looks a lot better in daylight than at nighttime that’s for sure. Might have to go back again early.

I once worked on a farm that grew sugar beet and it would be delivered to Bardney by tractor and trailer - quite a slow journey. When the factory was in full steam (literally) you could see huge white plumes from many miles away. A byproduct was thick molasses used for animal feed.
