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.

Visited with The_Raw, Sentinel and 5RINK5, and a few non-members. We also bumped into Gabe inside and a couple of others. We spent 10 hours in there fence to fence. It was a great day with many laughs!


Standard external shot. Used my phone for this because I didn't want to get my camera out in case we had to get out of sight in a hurry.







Tried to find a different angle to photograph the iconic table set up.




This little patch of foliage struck out to me because although we were standing in a massive industrial unit, I found it incredible how nature can always find a way to reclaim growing space.





Finally a relax on the building of Rank Hovis to unwind after a hectic day!

The shots here are just incredible, going up to London [removed], may just go to Silvertown and have a look at the premises.

EDIT. best not say when you may be going or you may have a reception committee waiting for you.

hey this is amazing!!
I'm looking for a place like this for a video shoot, and if I'm looking to hire any thing that looks like this its in the 1000's for a day!!
do you think it would be possible for a video shoot consisting of two models 1 cam man and myself?
is there a lot of activity around an is it easy to get to.
i can see the village where I've been raving to before so i know what it is an I'm going to have a look in the week but any heads up would be wicked!
thank you
