‘The Pie Factory’ by James Rennie

‘The Pie Factory’ by James Rennie | 2012

“The scheme’s main function serves as a pie factory, located next to The Virgin Mary Chantry. The factory commemorates the four chantries and celebrates Yorkshire food. The four chantry towers stand adjacent to one another, along the River Calder, working together to produce the pies. These pies are then taken to the sites of the other three chantries to be sold. Within each of the towers is an archive that houses recipes from their respective quarters of Wakefield, as well as a banquet space, where both contemporary and traditional Yorkshire food can be tried and enjoyed.”
