    I've visited this lovely paper mill several times since just after it closed in 2009, and the decline has been both sad and interesting to see - the change from a fully working modern paper mill to a stripped-out shell has been amazingly quick.

    One part that hasn't changed at all is the B-listed power house:

    I even did one of my panaorama exploramajigs:

    Click here to explore - it should open in Quicktime...

    Next into an electrical control room, which had stacks and stacks of plans.

    Carrying on through the mill, the decay is everywhere - like all paper mills, though, it's still got loads of fantastic fire doors (I've got a thing for big red steel fire doors).

    The halls which used to hold the massive paper machines are now stripped and the machines have gone East.

    The same area, in an old photograph left in a staff room:

    I'm easily amused:
