First site of the day, visited with dhl, God and bubblehead. Cheers lads I had a right laugh :thumb

The Terry's story begins in 1823 when Joseph Terry married Harriet Atkinson and joined her relative Robert Berry in his confectionary buisness. Robert Berry died shortly afterwards and his son George took his place in the buisness, now called Terry & Berry, until 1828 when he left.
Joseph Terry soon became known for cakes, sugared sweets, candied peel, marmalade and medicated lozenges. By the time of his own death in 1850 he was nationally known.
It was due to his son Joseph jnr's expansion of the buisness that in 1926 Terry's moved to this purpose built factory off Bishopthorpe road.


Terry's was taken over in 1993 by Kraft Foods who after only eight years closed the factory on September 30 2005, moving all production to Europe.

The site was bought by York based Grantside Ltd, their initial planning application was refused in 2008 with a heavily revised scheme approved two years later.
