    This was my first ever explore ! I've done one ROC but this was first proper go ! Hope it's ok

    Logan's mill was built in 1852 and continued to produce baked good up until 1930 when it was abandoned . It re
    mained derelict up until the 90,s and was easily accessible until then , however due to the poor state of the interior access to anything but the basement was practically impossible . The stairs were missing and all of the floors were either collapsed or extremely rotten .
    I explored the place in the 90,s but only the ground floor. there was a rumour that there was still machinery on the 5th floor but no way of finding out .
    In 2006 Cornwall county council decided that the site was dangerous and went to town to make it Fort Knox .
    Firstly they blocked up all of the ground floor windows and doors . Then erected a 10ft steel fence with spikes on top all the way round and then to make completely sure they erected another 8ft galvanised fence out side of that so access was impossible .
    Then decided to cover the entire site in a lovely climbing frame !!! Access easy !!!!

    Before heading for the building I went to the tunnel that runs under the site .

    The tunnel was straight and not worth getting wet for

    Expecting the site to be just a shell , I explored a few of the underground rooms

    Nothing too exciting in the basement -so I looked up wondering about the 5th floor

    Sorry to pounce on an old thread but was looking at this place myself. I only live 10 min walk away. Is it worth the look?
