    Default De La Rue Printworks- High Wycombe- September 2009


    What an epic find! I found this in the news, something to do with a housing development refusal. I donít think the site has been reported on before, but how awesome!

    I will be returning again to document more. I visited this site with Liam.

    De La Rue are a printing company, and at their High Wycombe branch, they produced security products. 350 Jobs were lost in the plants 2003 closure, and has sat unused since.

    De La Rue were formed in 1821, and print things such as bank notes, passports and secure data.

    Very little information on this site indeed; its defiantly a print works though! There was ink all over some of the floors.

    Well Done on being the first in Landie. Good Stuff.:)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'
