Real shortage of information about Ribble Mill – although Ribble Packaging of this address was prosecuted for H&S offenses in 2009.

Ribble Paper Mills Ltd was based in Walton – le – Dale, near Preston, Lancs producing waste paper based qualities which were the forerunners of todays packaging grades of liner and fluting. Even though the mill closed many years ago I believe that a corrugating business continued to operate under the name of Ribble Packaging Ltd.
