Exmoor’s Unique Handmade Paper Mill

Papermaking is in Jim Patterson’s Blood. He moved to West Somerset to work at Watchet’s paper mill and, when he was made redundant, he bought Roadwater’s 400-year-old former corn mill, Pitt Mill, as a base for his Two Rivers Paper Company.

Jim and his three colleagues produce hand made paper for artists from deep within this wooded Exmoor valley. Exmoor Radio paid Jim a visit and discovered how he’s using traditional methods to create a unique artisan product, which is in great demand.
