    I’ve been planning to visit here for about six months so finally made it down with Gabe and Tig.
    It’s got to be one of my top explores. The place is immense – we must have spent 8 hours there exploring its 13 floors and completely iced-over roof. We managed to find all three of Nick Franglen’s exhibits – with the TV still in perfect working order – they don’t make ‘em like they used to!
    It was all very relaxed and swell – secca duck was on top form :p. We were just about to leave when we saw a couple of guys dressed in black crowding round a car towards the back of the site. Not sure if they were seccas but whoever they were, they wouldn’t budge for about an hour so we headed out anyway. Whatever they were occupied with have been very mesmerising as they didn’t even notice us!

    History from wiki
    The Millennium Mills is a derelict turn of 20th century flour mill in West Silvertown on the south side of the Royal Victoria Dock, between the Thames Barrier and the ExCel exhibition centre alongside the newly built Britannia village, in Newham, London, England.[2] Along with Millennium Mills, there remains a small section of the now destroyed Rank Hovis Premier Mill and a restored grade II listed grain silo, labelled the ‘D’ silo. Described as a "decaying industrial anachronism standing defiant and alone in the surrounding subtopia",[3] the Millennium Mills has become a well-loved icon of post-industrial Britain and has made its way into many aspects of popular culture, being used as a backdrop in films and television shows such as Ashes to Ashes and Derek Jarman's The Last of England. Millennium Mills is also a destination for Urban Explorers despite high security, dangers of structural weakness, ten-storey drops and asbestos, and there are many reports and internal photos of the site.

    Is it me or does everything look like it’s upside down in this room?

    And that thing at the end of the room looks like a giant robot, about to pounce…
