H I S T O R Y BUILT BETWEEN 1901-1902 EMPLOYEES BEGAN TO WORK IN THE FACTORY ON JANUARY THIRD 1903 THE GRANDE OPENING OF THE FACTORY WASN’T UNTIL 1906 WHEN ALL OF THE COMPANY’S GREAT BRITISH WHOLESALERS WHERE INVITED TO VISIT. Not only were their railway fare and hotel expenses paid, but they were also provided with three days of entertainment, including a special dinner at Bristol’s Colston Hall. THE FACTORY CONTINUED TO PRODUCE A VARIETY OF CHOCOLATES AND SWEETS UNTIL 2006 WHEN THE COMPANY WAS BOUGHT BY AN ICELANDIC CONFECTIONARY COMPANY. THE BUILDING HAS BEEN EMPTY AND FAIRLY UNTOUCHED SINCE THE COMPANY WAS SOLD BUT IS STILL FULL OF EVIDENCE OF ALMOST A CENTURY OF CONFECTIONARY PRODUCTION.
