Extra help and support

We wish to invite everyone to share our passion for paper and will make arrangements for anyone with special requirements – just talk to us! Our Visitor Centre is accessible via a ramp and we have a lift to transfer people from the ground floor to pulper floor. We are by nature an old Victorian Mill and those visitors not able to use the final staircase can be taken to Fourdrinier No 2 via a different route. We just need to know in advance. Read more
