Join us for this family friendly day where you can have a go at turning pulp into paper, with forages natural materials from our grounds; unlocking links to our shared heritage – Wycombe’s river, the river Wye, is the reason many of us are living in the town.
Historically, its waters attracted people to the valley and by 1816, more than 30 mills were dotted along the Wye, grinding corn into flour, ‘fulling’ cloth, making paper, and sawing wood from the surrounding Chilterns’ woodland. This event is part of a series celebrating the milling history of our town.
