Welcome to the Knighton Centenary Website.....
this web site has been put together to plot the History of the Knighton factory over the past 100 years. It will be try to cover all the key changes to the factory over that time, along with the products and the people.
Please take a look around the site to get a feel for the Knighton Factory over the last 100 years.
With thanks to Jim Evans and the team at the Cadbury archive, with out who's help, this site would not have been possible.
In today’s ever changing world I am delighted to
be a part of the Knighton Factory as it reaches its
100th year. Whilst we might think that the pace of
change is ever increasing, it is obvious after reading
this history of the Knighton factory that it has seen
almost constant change throughout the years.
This factory, like many others, is made special by
the people who have worked here, both past and
present. It is through their energy and commitment
that the Knighton site has remained such a
successful business over such a long period.
Thank you for taking the time to read our history,
I am sure that you will find it as fascinating as I did.
Factory General Manager
