Robert Fletcher's Paper Mill - Greenfield - June 2011

Visited with DrHowser


This was re-visit for me. I always said after it being such a pain in the ass to get in last time, I wouldn't go back. Mr Howser however persuaded me otherwise and whilst people were still returning home from being drunk, we were skulking around this mill, waiting for sunrise, like a pair of... badgers?

I love this place, I think it's great. It's in fantastic condition given its 10 years + of being closed. I saw the site on tv, on a program called 'Send in the dogs' on ITV. It displayed the site being used for police dog training; highlighting a couple of internals it reminded me I should actually probably go back.

I was more than pleased to see much stuff which I missed back in September...

History (From Jst's Site and cheers for the intel:thumb)

Robert Fletcher has produced paper since 1823 but in 1986, the company became part of the Melton Medes group. As non-UK sales represented up to 45% of the company’s annual 20,000 tonnes output, the strength of the pound hit hard.

Greenfield Mill was one of two mills operated by Robert Fletcher & Son Ltd, for the manufacture of lightweight high opacity paper bible and cigarette paper. It closed in July 2001, following the closure of the company’s Stoneclough site the previous year.

The type of paper they produced has become quite unpopular in the UK due to the amount of chemicals (especially chlorine) used in its production as Europe moves towards TCF (totally-chlorine free) or ECF (elemental-chlorine free) production...
