It saw demand slump in the 1920s and 1930s and had to drive costs sharply down, to make chocolate — at the time a relatively expensive product — affordable for Britain’s expanding population.
It is probable that like me when I took Charlotte up the Old Man I took a block of Cadbury's chocolate and broke of pieces as we went,

in one famous incident I said to Charlotte, 12 years old, if you complain I will eat one of your rations - she did and I did -- she still reminds me of my "bastardry" today - excuse the language but she gets hot under the collar at the story - we were halfway up.

My single item on the bucket list is to stand on top of Old Man with Ed and Rebecca, Ed can bring who he likes.
