    Default Cherryridge Poultry, North Repps, Norfolk. Pic Heavy.


    Cherryridge Poultry was a leading Processor and Producer of Freerange and Organic Turkeys. The Avian Flu outbreak in Norfolk pushed down Turkey prices in around 2006 and as a Result over 50 jobs were lost at this Turkey Slaughter House and Butchery. I have personal interest in this site as I used to work here!, at its height 15,000 Birds a week were Hung, Killed and Butchered to supply leading SuperMarkets Nationwide. This is the old Engineers Shed and Maintenance Depot Despatch Department This is what is left of the Live Hang On Bay where I used to work! Lorries would have brought Cages full of Turkeys to be Hung Prior to Killing This the Farm Shop where you can Buy Pies Pasties etc for Lunch! Sadly no more! This was the Security Room Next to the Factory was a House and Outbuilding, needlless to sy they were explored too! The House itself was a Blinder! Thats it Guys, sorry for the loads of Pics!

    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    The House is made from Flint and typical of North Norfolk.

    I will try to get out there - it's on a bus route so could actually do it myself this week. Haha, if not, I'll have to do it once I'm Mrs Farrow (12 days to go!!).
    Blegh. Turkey.

    I managed about 3 Months before I packed in Lost. My hands were starting to suffer from picking up Turkey Stags that weighed between 30 and 55 pounds each.:(
