    First words for this have to be: truly exceptional and for the time being, my #1 industrial explore and my #2 of all time.

    We came very close to failing here, after me being nearly torn up by the mesh (though thankfully even my clothes emerged intact!) which the others wouldn't have been able to get through, but found a door on the inside for them to get through. We nearly bottled it AGAIN after finding all windows boarded and doors locked, although with a bit of determination and persistence we managed to squeeze through a small gap and get inside.

    What I really REALLY loved about this mill despite the alleged flytipping (loose videos dumped inside) was that it hasn't changed since being built. At all. Not only that, as far as I can see it's extremely rare to find such an old building that has so much left in situ; just look at that workshop. What a diamond. On the other hand a lot of the rooms were vast empty spaces making it a bit repetitive but there was always something that made it different. Was worth it for the water tower climb too! On a final note, it was a shame about the fire damage too but then it made for some interesting sights and was well contained nonetheless!
