TANGERINE CONFECTIONERY FACTORY VISIT
9th May 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm£10
The former Craven’s confectionery site on Low Poppleton Lane has been producing sweets since 1966 including toffee, fudge and chocolate treats as well as a range of traditional boiled sweets such as the classic, striped mint humbug.
The Craven family, and particularly the formidable Mary Ann Craven, ran their factory in Coppergate (above the Jorvik exhibition) from the 1850s before moving to Low Poppleton Lane in 1966. Tangerine Confectionery is the successor of Cravens and a visit to the factory will give us an insight into a fascinating and important part of the current economic life of York.
Meet in the Tangerine car park inside the factory gates at Low Poppleton Lane, York, YO26 2JS (if coming by car approach by Millfield Lane, from the A1297 bypass next to the Honda garage). The number 10 bus (every 30 minutes from Piccadilly) passes very close to the factory on Low Poppleton Lane.
