Visited here today with Gorecki! :D First things first (I have my priorities sorted!) thanks to Gorecki for making this happen (sounds like a bliddy Baftas award i've just won! :D) (many recce's have been made that's for sure!).

This place is huuuge!!
The paper mills, also known more locally as 'The muggiemoss paper mills', had for a long time been a major employer in Aiber-deen, with it employing around about 1000 workers at it's peak! Unsurprisingly, my family has little connections here through other people as im sure many folk who have been brought up here do.

However, more 'recent' years has seen the gradual winding down of the site and apprantely now only 4 employees remain, overseeing the site until it is finally finished for ever in September. (Production has stopped obviously).

Had a great time and was a real interesting place! Glad to have caught some of it before it's lost to the developers!
