The history of Chivers jam factory


The Chivers’ jam factory opened in Histon by 1875. In many ways the family were pioneers, industrially and socially. In 1895 they became Europe’s first large scale commercial canners. In 1902 a visitor reported the factory as a ‘truly wondrous place’. With a special family connection to the Chivers’ factory and Histon, and his expertise, David Oates will give a fascinating talk on Monday 3rd July at 730pm in the Baptist Church, Histon, and one not to be missed!
