North Yorkshire nursery helps restore historic site to former glories

Johnsons of Whixley

Johnsons of Whixley has supplied a range of trees and shrubs totalling £20,000 to a recently-completed residential development on an iconic site in York.

The North Yorkshire-based horticultural nursery, which recently celebrated its best ever financial year, has supplied plants as part of the conversion of the Grade II-listed Terry’s Factory. Johnsons has supplied 40 mature trees and 2,000 shrubs as part of the wider development, equating to the majority of the plants on site.

The art deco building, which will be known as The Residence, first opened in 1926 and was the home of famous brands including Terry’s Chocolate Orange and All Gold Chocolates. The factory closed in 2005 and it fell into serious disrepair in the years that followed, which resulted in the building being officially declared ‘at-risk’ by English Heritage The building has since been purchased by Henry Boot Developments, who have converted it into 170 apartments across five floors.

Johnsons of Whixley amenity sales manager, Andrew Barker, said: “The new development at The Terry’s Factory looks fantastic, and it’s been a pleasure to work alongside developers Henry Boot and David Wilson, alongside Bob Gascoyne Landscape Seeding, on the project.

“We have an excellent track record in the house building and residential development sector, and take particular pride in the quality of our products, the level of service and our ability to meet tight deadlines.”

The luxury apartments and penthouses at The Terry’s Factory range in price from £194,950 to £649,950, and the building features landscaped boulevard, boutique-style lobby and concierge desk.

The total cost of the development is £38m.
