    Visited this site with OliverGT - big thanks to him for getting in contact with me.

    This was my second attempt, but first successful visit. What an amazing place, I am so glad I've seen it. Pictures just don't do it justice.

    Access was fun, and once you're in there are lots of holes to fall through :D

    Brief History
    The main part of the building was built around the turn of the century. The wing on the west side of the building was built in 1933 - marked near the roof on the west wall. The smaller brown-brick building to the east was Premier Rank Mill, which is attached but does not have any internal doors attaching the two buildings. To the south of the main building was once another Spillers building linked at the top with a footbridge, but that has now been demolished. There were other buildings on the 55-acre site, most notably CWS Mills. The chimney outside the site was left from another mill as a memorial (in stark contrast to the houses and apartments surrounding it).

    The site has been used as a filming location many times, most famously for a scene in the BBC cop drama Ashes To Ashes, and the music video for Fluorescent Adolescent by Arctic Monkeys. Also, according to the IMDb, a scene in some underground tunnels in the 2010 film Green Zone was filmed here.
