Alphabet Friday - Biscuit Factory


It's Alphabet Friday once again and time for the second letter! "B" is for "Biscuit Factory" and Tudno Mill (or Ryecroft Mill no. 3) has for many years been the home of Hills Biscuits. The visitor approaching Ashton is often greeted by the mouth-watering smell of baking biscuits!

  3. I must have passed this mill hundreds of times and never knew that it was John Hill's Biscuit factory. The name is VERY familar though as we used to buy their biscuits from a stall inside the Market where the biscuits were displayed in glass topped square tins. Do you remember 'sports' biscuits and those tiny round things with icing on the top- can't remember their name!

    I have lived within the smell of the works all my life - But never bought the bisciuts!
