Golden Valley Paper Mills Ltd. of Bitton, Bristol, 5-plank wagon, No.2

Red oxide body with white lettering shaded black.

The paper mill at Bitton was originally a brass mill, but was converted to paper production in the 1830s. It was a busy operation, recorded in the 1860s as working 24 hours/day, 6 days/week, and employing 450 men and women. Like many paper mills fire was a constant hazard, and it burnt down several times; each time the opportunity was take to rebuild and improve. Production continued into the 1960s. Bitton was located on the Midland Railway’s line between Bristol and Bath..
