The Paper Trail

Home » News » The Paper Trail

Last Thursday, our Bedgrove House Group followed the paper trail at Frogmore Paper Mill, near Hemel Hempstead. In 1803, the world's first commercial papermaking machine was installed and operated at the mill. This, and other fascinating information was learnt during the presentation on the history of paper and the history of the mill itself. This was followed by a tour of what remains of the mill and an a hands-on-demonstration of how to make a sheet of paper. Whilst it is comforting to believe that paper is mainly used for the production of books, fine literature and the Bible, alas, the main use of paper nowadays is for toilet rolls!
The house group's next date is at the annual organ concert on Wednesday 16th May, organised by one of our members, Derrick Matthews. For more details of the concert, click here.
