    Because this place has been reported on so many times, I will keep the history brief.

    - The Spillers Millennium Mills was designed and built in 1905 by William Vernon and Sons and bought by Spillers shortly afterwards.

    - Millennium Mills was partially destroyed by a massive explosion at the neighbouring Brunner Mond’s works in 1917.

    - 1970`s saw the decline as the docks and the building was de-commissioned in the mid 1980’s when Spillers moved their milling activities East to Tilbury.

    - Millennium Mills’ future hangs on Japanese developer Kajima, who plans to turn the 60-acre site into luxury flats, 5,000 home waterfront development in the future, converting the Mills themselves into around 400 loft-style apartments when Silvertown Quays development starts, which will include a new Aquarium.
