Apsley Mills Cottage is a charming Grade II listed building situated on the Apsley Mills Site. John Dickinson moved into the North Wing in 1807 and the two subsequent wings were built on in the 1930s. The Cottage houses the Tudor Room which is the former John Dickinson Board Room and remains in use as a meeting room. There is a beautiful cottage garden, complete with war memorial to commemorate the fallen of both wars who worked at all the John Dickinson sites. The famous Basildon Bond clock adorns the gable end to the north of the building. Email [email protected] or complete

The John Dickinson Enterprise Centre (JDEC) on The Paper Trail’s Apsley Mills site is a purpose designed refurbishment for start-up and small business users.
The building was originally built as a single storey extension to the John Dickinson Stationery Company's Bookbinding Department in the early years of the last century. In 1919 a further two storeys with stair and lift access were added to the building for use in cabinet making. Subsequently, the building was used for many different purposes including that of the Print Works, a canteen and even the Wages Office.
During the first 6 months of 2003 the Apsley Paper Trail, supported by funding from EEDA (the East of England Development Agency), undertook the renovation and refurbishment of the building as a centre for start-up and small businesses. The John Dickinson Enterprise Centre (JDEC) formally opened its doors to tenants in August 2003. Please email [email protected] or complete
