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

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.

What a grim place. Did you work there for long?

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.:(

I assume all those bits of wallpaper in the kitchen were covered up with cupboards at one time.

Your Assumption would be right I think Rich, it seemed that the house was part of the Abbatoir somehow as there was easy access .
