Curtis Fine wasn't difficult to find, it's about all there is in Guardbridge, and huge derelict papermills are difficult to conceal even in the largest towns. We'd seen this in reports from Ben Cooper and hearing that the production lines are being remeoved we thought it was high time we paid a visit.

Visited with OT, Rooks & dweeb.

First target was the powerhouse, and this just blew us away, the biggest and lightest ever, thanks to walls of glass. The only one I've seen bigger than this was at the Guinness brewery, but that was really dark. You could spend half a day in here, it's amazing, the red control valves and green walls were good enough to lick...

Another, older control room turned up a model of the mill, unfortunately the buildings taken off the backboard, and also a couple of process models.

And then into the production line, before the paper machine is completely removed:
