Situated in Apsley, a suburb of Hemel Hempstead, Frogmore Mill is the world's oldest mechanised paper mill. In 1803 it became the birthplace of paper's Industrial Revolution when the first of what later became known as a Fourdrinier Paper machine was installed and operated here.
Now operated by the Apsley Paper Trail charitable trust, paper is still made here on a 110 year-old machine which can be viewed by visitors.
With a purpose built visitor centre, the site is open for visitors to learn about the history of paper and print, see paper being made, make their own sheet of paper and do lots of other exciting and interesting things. While visiting, you can also pop into the café for tea and cakes and browse in the mill shop.
