I also worked there as a letterpress machine minder between 1961 and 1967. There was a tunnel in the yard and one just up Chatham Hill on the left, used I believe to store paper. I think that the company was bought out by Gale & Polden Ltd.
Hi,

Could you elaborate on this because there is a huge thread discussing tunnels at the foot of Chatham Hill here:

neddy! I knew a few people that were at Clements during your time there, but at the moment I can only think of one name - Keith Cooper, a Comp. who lived in Gillingham.

I worked there during the Summer of 1970. I think there must have been some redevelopment on the site between when this photograph was taken and when I worked there as it looks different to how I remember it. (might be my memory though!)

The "cave" was used to store rubbish/etc when I worked there as I had to lug down all the out of date publications stored up in the attic  and dump them in there.

The printers is shown on the right hand side of the photo. Early 1960's I think.
