Gray, Dunn & Co Factory.
First visit with Eggbox.
Second visit with 2 Non-members.
I had watched this site from the passenger seat of Scattergun's car, driving along the M8, many times so it was great to eventually explore this factory.

Gray, Dunn & Co, the bakers and biscuit manufacturers was founded in 1853 and received a Royal Warrant from Queen Victoria. The firm's factory was built in Stanley Street in Kinning Park in 1862 but was destroyed by fine 13 years later and had to be rebuilt.
The Gray Dunn plant was sold to reputable Bilslands Bakers in 1912. In 1924, Rowntree accepted a 50% stake in the business.
Eventually Rowntrees was to take over, and Gray Dunns continued under Rowntree's ownership. It was associated with household names like Kitkat and Blue Riband, and produced 2000, of these buscuits, a minute.
The company went into receivership on 29th June 2001, leading to all 300 staff being made redundant and the factory became abandoned.
