Samuel Gawith factory pictorials

I wasn't sure if these have been posted here but I have accumulated a few articles with photos from SGs Kendal snuffmills in my bookmarks. The first two are more pipe tobacco oriented but have photos of the snuffmills, too.

Spanish Pipe Club visit. In Spanish, but with lots of photos:

  • Reading that Lancashire article makes me weep for the English language, or rather the editing of it....

    Notwithstanding that, I learned something today: That Sam Gawith's snuff grinders are probably the oldest production machines still in use today. Fascinating. Love the pics, and I hope to take a tour when I get to Blighty (someday...).
  • Reading that Gawith article makes me stop to have a pinch of Cob Dark, wonderful snuff. If I ever go to England again, I have to visit there. I noticed in one of the photos tins and tap boxes, and spied some Viking tins as well.
  • WOW the flake blocks are amazing........
  • it seems there are a few people wanting to go. perhaps a group visit could be organised? im sure the factory would let people look round if it was pre organised and theres something in it for them.

    Sorry - posted when I meant to preview.

    Anyway, I have to agree with number_seven; it's a bloody disgrace! As a proud Lancastrian, I hang my head in shame.

    Someone needs to tell the author that the shift key brings the quote mark and apostrophe into operation.

    Mind you, if he knew that we'd probably end up with something like:
    Entering Kendal Brown House, the rich dark aroma's envelop you like a cosy fog. The fabric of the mill is impregnated with the scent's of tobacco processed here since 1881; even more, some of the machinery that has ground snuff for its owner's since 1792.

    :D
