St Cuthberts Mill Tour – Wednesday 21 September 

This trip is now fully booked. 

Visit the historic St Cuthberts Mill in Somerset and experience how artist papers are made. The tour will take you on the journey of how they use the pure waters of the River Axe to turn cotton linters and woodfree pulps into sumptuous looking papers. See first-hand how a cylinder mould machine forms paper, and the long process of how paper is made. The tour will explain why this niche method of paper making is ideal for printmaking and watercolour papers and show the quality of hand finishing. St Cuthberts Mill is the home of Somerset printmaking paper, Bockingford and Saunders Waterford watercolour papers, along with their Somerset Enhanced fine art inkjet papers amongst others.

Visit to Lacock Abbey, Fox Talbot Museum and the City of Bath - Sunday 25 September

This tour is an opportunity for you to see Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Museum and have a quick wander around this ancient village followed by the afternoon in Bath.

Lacock & Fox Talbot Museum:
One man’s ambition changed the way we see the world, forever. William Henry Fox Talbot, polymath and pioneer of Victorian photography, created the earliest surviving photographic negative in 1835 at Lacock Abbey. The Fox Talbot Museum is housed in a sixteenth-century barn once used as stables. It tells the story of the birth of photography with objects and technology from the early years of photography, and hosts changing photography exhibitions in the Upper Gallery.

Go back in time to see Fox Talbot's mousetrap camera and discover how photography came to be. Learn about the history of photography, the chemistry behind Talbot's process and find out how two men entered into a race to claim the title 'inventor of photography'.

There's lots to discover in Lacock village too: quaint traditional stone cottages, the old workhouse, the medieval tithe barn, the old lock-up and the village church. The entrance fee to the Abbey and Museum are included in the cost of the trip.
More information on Lacock Abbey and the Fox Talbot Museum.

City of Bath:
An elegant city full of traditional heritage, contemporary culture, green spaces and a few surprises. Built for pleasure and relaxation, beautiful Bath has been a wellbeing destination since Roman times. The waters are still a big draw, both at the ancient Roman Baths and the thoroughly modern Thermae Bath Spa. Bath’s compact, visitor-friendly centre is overflowing with places to eat and drink, plus some of the finest independent shops in Britain. Bath's stunning honey-coloured Georgian architecture is straight from a Jane Austen novel – highlights include the iconic Royal Crescent and the majestic Circus.

Immerse yourself in Bath’s remarkable collection of museums and galleries or just sit and watch the world go by at one of the lovely cafes or tea rooms. There are many interesting things to see and do in Bath. Download the Official Visitor Guide to Bath for more information.

You should arrive in Bath in time for a late lunch, you may wish to come prepared and bring your own snacks and/or packed lunch to eat on the bus. (Lunch will not be provided).
