Paper was being manufactured at Dinting paperworks, to the west of Glossop, by 1835, the mill having been built as a cotton spinning mill in the early 1800s. By the 1860s there were at least two more in the area (Schmoller 1994).

Manufacture initially used rags, straw, jute and esparto (Anon 1936). A number of successive owners had gone bankrupt in the paper-making business; however, two empty paper mills at Whitfield were taken over by manufacturers from Bury to develop a new paper-making process. Experiments were successful and expansion began in 1882 to devel op the large paper-making complex known as Turn Lee Mills (SMR 6146; Hanmer & Winterbottom 1991)
