Buckland Paper Mill closed abruptly in 2000 after approximately 300 years of making paper in Dover.

  • warm, funny, shocking, sad…
  • Why did the mill close?
  • How important was Dover water?
  • How has the closure impacted on the town?

Dover Arts Development (DAD) is proud to present “WATERMARK”, the 90-minute feature documentary about Buckland Paper Mill told through the stories of the men and women who worked there.

As well as making use of photographs from the Dover Museum Collection, the film includes as yet unseen footage of a normal working day in the mill shot by the late Colin Pritchard and photographs collected in March 2010 at the story shop opened by Dover Arts Development in Bench street to record and collect stories and memorabilia about Buckland Paper Mill.

Director, Marianne Kapfer, will be present. There will also be a presentation of watermarks by former mill employee David Langley to Jon Iveson, curator of Dover Museum, for the Museum Collection.

A DVD of the film will be available to buy at the special preview price of £15 on March 6th between 10 am and 2 pm at Dover Town Hall.
