    Default British Cellophane, Bridgwater, July 09


    Went with Dangerous Dave.
    Mission to get in but cracking site. Worth the drive for sure!

    Ripped from Wiki
    "British Cellophane Ltd (BCL) was a joint venture company formed in 1935 between La Cellophane SA and Courtaulds, when they began building a major factory for producing Cellophane in Bridgwater, Somerset, England.

    The process for manufacturing cellulose film from viscose was discovered by three English chemists, Charles Frederick Cross, Edward John Bevan and Clayton Beadle in 1898.

    I'd been wondering what was going on here at moment so its great to get an update and see that things are largely unchanged... Though have they started to demolish the outbuildings in the last photo?
