Visited with Hamtagger and Session9

The main reason I wanted to go here was for the stairs (And I took about 70 pictures of them all together)

We left Lincolnshire early as always, driving down the motorway half asleep en route to York to pick Session9 up for our "First splore of the day"

When we arrived at Terry's we headed straight for the Admin building but it looked like the only way in would be a tough one, and we had walked past 5 cameras without noticing (They're pretty small) Luckily we were there earlier than the security. We then decided to do the main "Crappy derp of a building" to begin with and head back for the Admin after.

The main factory actually wasn't that bad, it was a bit bare but still better than some of the others I've been to. After an eventful walk around finding a potential IED, a turd on the roof :poo and slipping on ice every 10 seconds we headed for the Clock tower, but it was sealed tighter than Fort Knox. (You win some, you lose some)

So we walked back to the Admin building and made our way in. Session9 is approximately 8 feet tall so it was quite interesting squeezing through tiny gaps ;)

History

Terry's was a chocolate and confectionery maker in York, England. Its history stretched back to 1767, but in 1993 it was taken over by Kraft Foods. The company's headquarters, later renamed The Chocolate Works factory, was closed by Kraft in 2005, and products using the Terry's brand name are now produced in other Kraft facilities in Poland, Sweden, Belgium, and Slovakia. The Terry's name eventually became part of Mondelēz International.

I wanted to go for a different angle than the others I'd seen, so I got Hamtagger to pose on a post with me.

I may have obsessed over these a bit

We still managed though. All 3 of our places we went to involved awkward climbing of some sort. My legs are still feeling it now.

Looking good, love shot 3 and you've got a fair few other bangers to boot. Good job getting in there too as access seems to be a bit of a gamble with that place (y)
