      Rather a stylish factory building. I'm glad they just moved the business and didn't shut down totally. Have you ever eaten their stuff?

      Yes, my grandmother and my mother used to always keep a tin of their baking chocolate around..

      Very nice! It's amazng how attractive some of these purely functional old factory buildings could be, something I wish todays architects/companies would take more note of.

      Thanks, Aidan. This factory and additional buildings go on for many acres, but all of them are reasonably attractive in their own way. They're being converted to condos now, which is better than seeing them decay or get torn down..

      Funny, one of my contacts used to live in this one.
      One of my sons lives in the old chocolate factory in Mansfield.
