Made in England, at St Cuthbert's Mill, Somerset
St Cuthbert's Mill, which nestles high up the River Axe valley, has been using the pure water of the River Axe to make paper on the same site since the 1700‰۪s. Surrounded by the green fields and quiet country lanes of the English countryside, in the beautiful county of Somerset, St Cuthbert's Mill is located near the ancient Cathedral City of Wells, close to the mystic town of Glastonbury (the legendary resting place of King Arthur), and south of the historic City of Bath, famous for its magnificent Roman baths.
St Cuthbert's Mill has a staff of highly skilled craftsmen, who are passionate about paper. Papermaking is a trade passed down through the generations, and their team is no exception. They understand the science behind paper, and how subtle changes affect the finished sheet. They are at the top of their profession for making fine quality paper.
