Located in the Greenbank area of Bristol, the site dates back to 1881 and had many names & owners previous to Elizabeth Shaw. The site closed in October 2006 and has hevily deteriorated in years that followed.

A second visit to this site, it’s state continues to deteriate.

    Yeah it’s been secure for a few years now. To be honest its a complete mess inside – best off looking elsewhere.

    Would love to shoot some pics here (for a commercial project)… anyone know who to speak to? Who manages the site now?
    Or can I just sneak in?

    There is a website for the redevelopment here: http://www.greenbankchocolatefactory.co.uk/ – the place is usually occupied with a few unsavoury types at the best of times. I would avoid.

    Hey brilliant pictures! Looks awesome! I was wondering if anybody knew any contact details for this place as I would like to use it as a film location. Any ideas who I can contact about it? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    I think its down to finding a developer who sees the current plans as financially viable. While it was all well and good seeing the site saved its now in such a horrible ruined state that maybe actually having it knocked down wasn’t such a bad idea.

    As a greenbank resident: does anyone have any idea regarding the so called regeneration that was supposed to have begun during the latter half of 2009?
    The Elizabeth Shaw … Square Peg Urban Redevelopment project … has it stalled and why?

    I just discovered the urbex movement and I was wondering if there was any groups of photographers who do that here in Bristol ?
