Visited with two non-members.
This is my first report, so ill try my best.

History
[From wikipedia] 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. 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", 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.

The Explore
There was no security or dogs on the site whatsoever, which we immediately thought weird (it was mid-day on a Sunday) but we continued on regardless. Once inside (which was awfully difficult) we discovered that a lot of the rooms had been boarded up and were impossible to get into. The upper floors have a lot of holes in them making them very difficult to navigate safely. There was a small rectangular office which had the sign "guard dogs inside" so we left that area as soon as possible.

Photos
We were only in for about 30 mins and im still getting used to the camera, so sorry for quality/lack of photos.

Sorry for lack of pictures inside, this was our first explore.
More pictures can be found on my flickr.

Thanks for reading/looking - Ryan

You've not done a bad job with the photos, first one is spot on. There's not much left to see inside now anyway but you could still get up to the roof when I last went a couple of months back. There's more than 1 staircase....
