    The Visit

    Having been exploring for just over a year, I've always had this place in the back of my mind as one to do before it's too late. It really didn't disappoint.

    Sorry to tell you what you've heard a hundred times before, but it really is a special location. The pigeon shit, huge drops over multiple floors and lack of light in parts made it even more exciting.

    Getting in was easier that I expected, especially as I'd tried once before and failed. I guess this was a mixture of luck, more experience, timing and good judgement.

    If the report is a bit pic-heavy, I'll remove a couple.

    History

    A bit of history from wiki: The Millennium Mills is a derelict turn of 20th century flour mill in West Silvertown on the south side of the Royal Victoria Dock, between the Thames Barrier and the ExCel exhibition centre alongside the newly built Britannia village, in Newham, London, England. Along with Millennium Mills, there remains a small section of the now destroyed Rank Hovis Premier Mill and a restored grade II listed grain silo, labelled the ‘D’ silo.

    Described as a "decaying industrial anachronism standing defiant and alone in the surrounding subtopia", the Millennium Mills has become a well-loved icon of post-industrial Britain and has made its way into many aspects of popular culture, being used as a backdrop in films and television shows such as Ashes to Ashes and Derek Jarman's The Last of England. Millennium Mills is also a destination for Urban Explorers despite high security, dangers of structural weakness, ten-storey drops and asbestos, and there are many reports and internal photos of the site.
