Cadbury no more

The final word in the history of the Cadbury chocolate factory was written yesterday when demolition crews toppled the final piece of company livery from the complex’s rapidly diminishing facades.

A Ministry of Health spokeswoman said demolition contractor Ceres expected to level all of the Cumberland St walls this week, and the Castle St frontage was expected to be knocked over next week.

"The demolition team will continue processing material on site after that, crushing and stockpiling concrete for example, and demolition works will largely be complete by the end of October."
