Historic Turkey Mill
Turkey Mill is a fascinating group of buildings steeped in local history. In 1740, James Whatman and family took up residence in Turkey Court. Whatman converted the mill into the largest paper mill in the country, establishing an international reputation for producing fine quality 'wove' papers. The paper produced at Turkey Mill was used by William Blake, who described it as "the most beautiful paper that could be produced". Napoleon used Whatman paper to write his will and Queen Victoria sent personal letters on it. The paper was even used by Stalin's government during the 1930s. The Mill finally closed in 1976 after 280 years of continuous paper production.
