The Explore

The Nestle Coffee Factory in Hayes is definitely one to add to the list if you like a challenge, Access - Hard, Security - Good... Though putting that aside, another epic explore, there was so much remanence of the factory's past use left behind, almost like the workers had got up and left, it didn't look like there was any vandalism what so ever! As soon as we pulled up we saw the large cooling tower encroach over us, it had to be done really didn't it! not one for the faint hatred mind you, the place was riddled with Fibreglass Lagging witch made our skin feel electric! Not ideal! apart from the 130ft of Un-Caged ladder it was awesome the views from the top were spectacular! sadly it looks like there starting to rip out the old plant already, with certain sections of the old factory half torn apart.

The History

The factory was opened in 1913 by Eugen Sandow, regarded by many as the father of modern bodybuilding, of all things, who rose to prominence in the late nineteenth century and who claimed that chocolate was the source of his strength.

This business venture was to prove a failure, however, and having been taken over by Hayes Cocoa just three years later in 1916, it was then bought by Nestlé and production began in 1929.

Shortly after the takeover, Nestlé were approached by the Brazilian Coffee Institute who were looking for ways to deal with their surplus coffee supplies.

Nestlé began experimenting with ways to dry and capture the flavours of the beans, and after eight years of trial and error, the world's first instant coffee was devised and introduced to the market in 1939.

The Hayes factory was earmarked as the site that would roll the revolutionary new product off the line, and tonnes of it were sent over to troops fighting in the Second World War.

Hayes also produced some of the company's chocolate products until the end of the 1990s, when all of the factory was given over to the production of coffee.

Nice one. I'm surprised they haven't locked the chimney up yet seeing as it's been posted in public for ages, it's well fetid at the top!
