Frogmore Paper Mill
Frogmore Paper Mill is operated by the Apsley Paper Trail, a charitable trust founded to conserve the unique industrial heritage of this site in Hemel Hempstead.
In 1803 Frogmore Paper Mill was the place selected by Henry and Sealy Fourdrinier for the trials of their newly patented paper machine. With the successful installation of the world’s first ever paper machine at the mill began the paper's industrial revolution leading to the cheap, plentiful paper products that we all use every day of our lives.
Frogmore is still a working paper mill but, as operated by the charity, it is also a visitor, education and community use centre as well. The trust is entirely self-financing and, of course, is not-for-profit with all proceeds from its activities being re-invested in the repair, maintenance and development of the mill and its historic equipment.
Frogmore Paper Mill can offer you room hire and conferencing in a unique and friendly setting at a location which adds unique interest to your event. Any visit is fully customizable and can include: papermaking, a mill tour, a boat trip, a fish and chip or buffet lunch and even a ‘paper model boat race’ on the back stream if you would like a bit of fun. All facilities are fully wheelchair accessible and are available for rent for a single or half a day, with catering or without and at very reasonable rates.
