Cutting the mustard since 1825
Established in 1825. Renovated in 2017.
The story behind the site
Taylors Mustard was formed in 1825 by William Taylor. Originally a chemist, Taylor developed his own unique recipe, a closely guarded secret, and produced the first English mustard to be sold ready prepared.
He moved into 34 High Street a few years later and founded his factory in Union Street, where Taylors Mustard was then made for over 170 years.
Putting mustard back on the menu
The factory having closed in 1990, the site remained empty and abandoned for years, but still embodied so much of our heritage and history. Now the site with its characterful buildings and in its prime central location lives again, except as beautiful dwellings for you to enjoy living in.
