    XTheRoseRedX and myself visited Intier earlier in the week, looks can definitely be deceiving as you don't realise the scale of the place until you step inside.
    You can also definitely tell the difference between the beautiful brickwork of the old buildings and the new.

    History

    'This site has been a part of Bittons industrial history since Golden Valley Mill was developed as a brass works in the early 18th Century.
    The original buildings were destroyed by fire in the 19th Century but the site was re-developed as a paper mill.
    Paper products were produced here until the 1960s, and from 1963 the Canadian owned company, Intier.
    They produced wood fibre moulded components for Ford, Jaguar, Rover, and Saab for use in their cars.
    Apparently they pulped over 20 tons of logs every day until the factory closed in 2006.'


    There are currently no plans in place for this site.

    Oh really? That's a shame, there were some lovely old buildings hidden within the site.
