Torrington Creamery (Taddiport) Aug 2010

This site has been featured quite a lot on other sites but still a very interesting site.

The site of the Rolle Canal Company’s stores was leased to Messrs Robert Sandford and Son, and there in 1874 began the Torridge Vale Butter factory, later to become the much expanded, highly mechanised Milk Marketing Board, Dairy Crest plant. The closure in 1993 left the structure of the plant remaining to dominate this part of the town and a huge deficit in employment opportunities.

The site has been stripped of most valuable metals but worked stopped around 18 months ago due to the company going into liquidation, the site is now in the hands of the official receiver.

The pictures, as you can see i’m no photographer but captured some half reasonable shots.
