    Default Papermanufacturing at its best (pic heavy)


    This was a sad time for people up there. when the plant went into administration being undercut by cheaper imported paper. The machines where broken down and exported to new owners in France i believe. This again was begun when it s closure was announced we had already done the Power plant on site 2 years prior.

    While others where looking at the old power plant we where in the Papermill getting as mush as possible over time this became harder with more high tech gadgets being installed meant every visit was a adventure but it didn't stop us. this included onsite security some close calls and surprises where entertaining. Didn't think i would ever see 1 intact machine. Never mind 3 Paper machines, packing and raw material where the reward. We had more fun here than you could shake a stick at even had birthday celebration in here

    That is a building and a half. Absolutely stunning. Good job.
    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.

    Well done, that's a great record of the place and testament to the fact you like exploring in the dark! I'd like to have seen the No.3 machine as it was made in Edinburgh by Bertrams of Sciennes IIRC..

    They haven't wasted time clearing the site, every time I drive past another bit has has been flattened.

    That's an interesting post and a nice piece of industrial photography.
