    Rank, Hovis, McDougall Premier Mill. Next door to Millennium Mills.
    It closed in the early 80's. 1982 I believe. The place is a real mess inside due to 25 years of rain coming throught the skylights and a failed roof.
    I know some of you have been in but I thought it deserved a thorough explore! I've been in lots of times of the past few months to record as many details as possible before it gets sanitised. Lots of pics but I struggled to get it down to these!
