    Greetings. As has been customary for the past 6 years, it was time for another of our European holidays. This time we headed to Eastern Germany, Austria and Slovenia (via the Czech Republic)

    This trip was centralised around a few key buildings I’d discovered plus a whole lot more found by desktop means that were clearly disused, the status of which was unknown. Our time was primarily spent traversing the distances between these in relative luxury, contained within an Audi rocketship.

    Unfortunately most of what we found was either ‘big and empty’ or just not feasible, including the time we rolled into a small Czech town to ‘czech’ out an old district / factory heating plant and the entire population of the town seemed to come out of the woodwork to stare at us.

    However, on a couple of occasions gold was struck.

    This mill was almost entirely intact and absolutely packed to the rafters of goodness. An amazing place to spend a couple of hours just wandering and discovering stuff. It seems like it may have been squatted at some point as there is some really shit graffiti in one part. Luckily it is confined to one or two rooms, leaving the gourmet machinery etc untouched.

    The owners I believe live on site, as there were a couple of houses round the back, however, a fairly well trafficked footpath ran right next to it giving us the excuse to be walking nearby as parking our car right next door would have been a bit of a giveaway. We chose our moment and dived in.

    There's information abundent online about this mill but I feel that posting any part of it would probably give away the location, so I won't. Calendars and docs seemed to peter out in the mid 90’s so presuming that was the end of its heyday.

    As always, if you’re interested in finding out where it is and visiting, let me know by PM. The lofts are populated by many bats so caution is advised.

    Lots of photos due to generally excellent subject matter and the mill be huge, so if that somehow offends, as always, feel free to click the back button.

    One of the last pieces of finished product still on the machine. Looked like curtain material.

    Patterns were fed through machines and took the form of perforated paper / card, similar to a music box

    These were the machines for producing the patterns.

    Some bits seemed to be a lot more derelict than others leading us to presume that half of it was already abandoned whilst the other half still worked.

    Cheers hostie, not much to be honest, we only really managed three explores that are report worthy. Spent a lot of time sitting in traffic it seemed.
