I've Visited here a few times this year so here are the best pics from my visits.

This silo was built in the early 20th century for the purpose of storing Oilseeds such as Linseed and Cottonseed, which were later crushed for their oils, with the remaining residue used in cattle meal. It has laid derelict on the bank of the river Hull since the 1970's.

Spillers Mill in Hull has gone, Hull's Rank Hovis Mill is going (Manor Mill development), fortunately this one should be staying as it holds grade II listed status with English Heritage.

Picture of some of the equipment in the adjoining building (nearest the River) I think this building is where the seed was crushed:

This picture is of the silo attic showing the tops of some of the 66 (apparently, I didn’t count them) vertical shafts which held the seed.

Good stonework is largely a thing of the past, especially the placing of good stone work in places few will see, like this watertower on top of the silo, seeing the extra bits like that make the ascent to the top even more worthwhile.

Hull is very flat, with not many tall buildings so been up here really does feel like been on top of the world (and climbing the single ladder to the top really feels like climbing to the top of the world).

The dreaded fire exit on the side:

The floor in one of the warehouses on the BE site is the craziest wooden floor I have ever seen, the expanding of the wood has caused some serious buckling.

Excellent photos. There were a lot of seed crushing companies along the River Hull at one time, I'm not sure how many are left, there was Barkers, they produced really high quality linseed oil. Anyway great photos I wish someone would find a use for this building.

Nice work mate, I've never understood why more people have not done this place, I think it's one of the best mills in the North...

God, the warehouse with the missing panels brings back a few memories, went to a boot sale there when I was about 5...
