Description

This is my first outing with the Gigapan. One of those autumn days here in the UK that promises to be nice - but took until 2.00pm for the morning mist to clear.

Even so, this is still very hazy. However, the image seemed to stich together well. I'll clearly have to return when the light is better.

This is a genuine chocolate factory! Originally built in 1935 as part of the Frys chocolate group, it has been part of the lifeblood of Keynsham for generations. Unfortunately, Cadburys have decided to move production elsewhere - and so the factory will close in 2010 - a real pity for the town.

UPDATE: APRIL 2010

Of course, the factory has now made national news here in the UK when Kraft took over the company, initially promising to keep the factory open, then amazingly (for a company which had presumably done due diligence on the accounts as part of the purchase) subsequently decided it would be too expensive to reverse the previous decision. Questions were asked in parliament! Of course, the real victims as ever are the workers in the factory. I suspect the men from Kraft who made the cock-up will go on to have successful careers....
