    Having read the report from 4 years ago http://www.28dayslater.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/55822-Laverstoke-Mill-Hampshire-December-2010, just happened to call in to the site to have a look (for work of course!) so took a few piccies.
    Part of the mill has been taken over by Bombay Sapphire as a distillery and the rest is being developed as a visitor centre and shopping outlet with former F1 driver Jody Scheckter opening a restaurant and farm shop.

    Looking over the river towards the entrance. Old tin sheds gone. 'Clock building' (don't know what number it is) on RHS

    Not looking too bad, at least they haven't just smacked it down and turned it into flats :)

    Yeah, nice when contractors keep the old sites, much prefure older architecture to "modern" architecture, it makes sense only to the person building it and looks ugly to everyone else. (IMO)

    Nice one! Thanks for sharing.
