    History
    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.

    Went for a couple of visits, first with The_Raw and Skeleton Key and one other
    Second visit was with The_Raw, Bassboyjoe and 5RINK5 and bumping into Gabe (sorry you had to see that sight on the roof mate, it had to be done though)
    Both visits were a laugh with great company, and secca present (for what the are worth)

    Second visit provided some disturbing viewing of what we thought was secca feeding the geese, but NO He was enticing the geese with bread only to throw stones at them.
    He was so useless that a couple of girls that had left the busted illegal rave down the road (you can imagine the state of them) managed to get into the building, around every part of the site and actually at one stage was over by the domes on the opposite side to the building and around 50m away from the secca without being seen......amazing how much of a lazy pr*ck this guy was.

    And finally, its obviously not as close as others or myself would like to get, but I am trying to overcome my fear of heights as I find it rather restricting.
