Office Space to let
in Apsley

Renting office space from the Apsley Paper Trail Trust is to be part of the important history and culture of the Gade River Valley where Apsley and Hemel Hempstead are located. Being the buildings that once housed the thriving local paper industry, our offices are far from bland and anonymous. Paper is to Apsley what steel is to Sheffield, or lace to Nottingham. Our rooms are the same rooms that local paper tycoon John Dickinson worked from, where John Dickinson & Co. grew to international fame and The British Paper Company was housed. In 1803 the first ever mechanised paper machine, the “Fourdrinier”, was installed at Frogmore Paper Mill in Apsley, and John Dickinson’s Cylinder Mould Machine was developed and installed at Apsley Mills in 1809.

What our residents say…

I highly recommend the offices at Frogmore Paper Mill, I have been a tenant for over 7 years and the whole team go out of their way to accommodate the needs of my business


We have been tenants of Frogmore Paper Mill for over 2 years to date, during that time we have found our landlords to be very supportive and responsive to all of our needs. They have provided Bauxite with a genuinely personal service at prices we could not have achieved elsewhere. Even when we upside to a larger office within the same building, they were flexible in their approach which I don’t believe is the case with a normal tenant/landlord relationship. I have encouraged friends and colleagues to seriously think about relocating to our premises.

Andy Barracliffe, Bauxite Glazing Specialists Limited.

We have been using the office space at the JDEC for over 15 years which evidently shows how happy we are here. The location is great as the M1 and M25 are within easy reach plus there is a local pub and a Sainsbury’s within a few minutes walk. Parking is good and is monitored which stops people abusing it to use the train station over the road. The management of the site and their staff are all very friendly and attentive when necessary. Any issue within the office can be raised via phone or email and then it is always looked into and rectified fairly quickly. All of the buildings have good intruder alarm systems and the fact the site has 24 hour security response is an added bonus.

Overall we are very happy with the office space and site. We would highly recommend the office space to anyone who is looking.
