Operated by Apsley Paper Trail, a dedicated conservation and education charity, it is still a working paper mill but the emphasis is now firmly on providing a fascinating (and different) visitor experience. Our paper machines are both well over 100 years old and much of the mill is exactly as it was at the end of the 19th century, while Victoria was still on the throne. On your visit, you will be escorted around the mill by one of our volunteer guides. They will show you the machinery and explain all about the processes and the power sources that have a role in the thousand years of industrial heritage that Frogmore has witnessed. You'll find out all about the curious history of paper and papermaking as well as seeing how handmade paper is made and even have the chance to make a handmade sheet of your own. You will also learn about letterpress printing, its history and its practise and can ponder the huge impact that paper and print have had on the world that we live in today. If you are looking for a visit that offers something different from the usual fare but is still active and intriguing, then we can promise you that you will find a visit to Frogmore Paper Mill, anything but 'run of the mill'. « less

Today, the old towpath serves as a wonderful cycle route. Apsley was once an important centre for paper manufacture. The Grand Union Canal transported huge amounts of raw materials on barges to the paper mills here. Full-scale production of paper only ceased in the Second World War. Today, the old industrial buildings are now cafés, pubs and a visitor centre - and make a great day out. « less
