    Sorry about the large post!

    Well where do i start! One of the most amazing explores ever! huge place, a few scares along the way and rubbish weather! Hope you like the pics, it was raining, misty and snowy!

    Theres alot of history to this place so i will keep it quick as most of it is boring:

    One of the first papermakers was the firm started by a Huguenot, Henri de Portal, in 1712 at Bere Mill and in 1718 at Laverstoke Mill both on the river Test near Overton in Hampshire and carried on by his son Joseph Portal who bought Laverstoke Manor. They produced paper for Bank of England notes from 1724. They also invented the metallic thread incorporated into the paper.

    The company to last own it:
    PCI Membranes is the specialist filtration and separation company. Launched in 1967; PCI Membranes has developed expertise using all of the leading tubular, polymeric crossflow membranes and membrane configurations available on the world market and is therefore ideally placed to match a membrane to a specific application.

    The Planning back in 2008:

    In October 2008, a planning application for 78 dwellings was submitted to the council, which attracted nine letters of objection, but it was withdrawn in November 2009. The revised scheme has been produced to address concerns about the design and layout of the new buildings. It reduces the number of new-build homes from 26 to 20, revises an access point, relocates parking to improve the Mill House setting and re-routes the heritage trail along the river to give a better view of the historic buildings backing on to the river. The new buildings will be simplified to be more in keeping with the industrial character of the site. Since the new plans were submitted one person has objected.
