About the group A group of chocolate factories from around the country. Because everything's better with chocolate!
Created 17 May 2012
One of several images of the factory, once famous for products including the Terry's Chocolate Orange. It opened in 1926 (other images on this site, from that year, show it under construction). It closed in 2005.
I don't remember Pascalls, before my time.
Later made the Elizabeth Shaw brand of chocolates.

I love how they told every single child (and adult) in the surrounding areas what exactly they are producing - the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of the 1920s ...

The only thing I remember Paynes for was Poppets. They used to sell them in vending machines in the London Underground.
As a university student in Norwich in 1965, I spent the summer vacation working at Caley's, which following its sale by Unilever in 1932, was owned and known as Mackintosh's. Working on the night shift there for several weeks, my sole and soul-destroying job was to unload the trays of Caramac coming off the production line into larger trays. You could eat as much as you wanted which meant I never ate another bar of Caramac for over 30 years. (In 1969, it merged with Rowntree's to form Rowntree Mackintosh, which then was taken over by Nestlé in 1988. And the factory closed in 1994)
Waiting in anticipation to see if aerofilms photographed the Cadbury factory at Marlowe just outside Leominster. Associated with the production of Chocolate crumb since 1936 I used to drive past it everyday.
Located just outside Bristol near to Keynsham.
There was always a sweet aroma even three or four miles away. Recently closed (2011) and production transferred to Poland
