    Every time i use to go over the Severn bridge i would look down and think to myself WTF is that down there? It was allways lit up and there was never was any activity going on there. So i looked into it and found out it was a closed down Papermill.

    I went to have a look a few times but for various reasons it was a no go. Went back today with Rooks and with a bit of climbing, camera/salvage worker/security dodging we were in.

    By the time the salvage workers fucked off we did not have much time left so i think we only got to see about half the site.

    The Sudbrook Mill was established in the 1960s close to Chepstow in South Wales. It produced semi-chemical fluting, which forms the corrugated layer in cardboard packaging. The Sudbrook process uses a combination of virgin fibre from hardwood with recycled cardboard. It produced a grade of paper which occupies a niche position in the market for packaging materials used in applications involving exposure to moisture e.g. fruit and vegetables.

    The plant had lacked investment and when energy prices went up dramatically with the plant bein dependence on gas it was decided that the plant would be closed in march 2006.
