    Bourton Mill has been completely destroyed by visitors. Graffiti almost covers every wall, random junk is pretty much everywhere and the mill is just in a complete derelict state.

    There are some features and machinery which are still in place, just rusty and covered in graffiti, but that is exactly what I expected.

    There is water running through the factory, coming from a lake at the back on the premises. The sound of running water is obvious throughout the factory and it makes this abandonment a pretty awesome find.

    There is now metal fencing and wooden walls located around the premises, but it is fairly easy to find an entrance and once you are inside, it’s surprisingly fairly quiet. We visited for just over two hours without seeing anyone else – Ideal!

    Be careful when visiting as some of the ceilings and stairs are a bit unstable, but it’s pretty safe to wander around. There are plans to demolish the factory and to build multiple houses, so get exploring before it’s too late!

    It's a derelict mill, not a museum. You're going to be very disappointed if you expect everything to be pristine.

    Sometimes dereliction is far more charming than stepping into an office that feels like workers are just out for lunch.

    Looks like some nice little bits of graff!

    The mill was exactly what I expected and after being abandoned for a number of years, a pristine abandonment would never on the cards! Was such an awesome find.

    I HATE bloody graffiti. Why do they bother? Do they think someone will be impressed?

    You wouldn't mind if I used these photos for my blog would you? I recently visited this place but at night so couldn't get any cool looking photos like these and these seem the most recent I could find anywhere, also all photo credit goes to you obviously :)
