Report - Philip Doe and Sons - East Bay Mill - Colchester - Feb 2012


Got Epic?

So, had a free day, thought id go out and have a bit of a mooch around a few things in Colchester. From the outside this place looks like nothing more than an old tumble down shack really, about the size of a double garage and two stories high (plus loft). The East Bay area is also just an area of waste land with a few derelict houses that should have been demolished years ago. Not going to be much to see here i thought!

However! somehow i managed to spend two hours in this tiny building. It was great! On the ground floor there were several items of locally made milling equipment, all in mint condition, grain still in the hoppers! Then there was a small office with desk full of old BOCM memorabilia and general 70s junk.. that alone accounted for half an hours rummaging! Getting upstairs proved more tricky, in the end i worked out how to get a trapdoor open from below and climbed up into one giant cobweb! There were more nice lovely wooden hoppers and stuff up there but also sacks and sacks full of well.... sacks! Sacks form local companies, sacks from places we have explored, sacks from converted mills i drive past all the time. In the end i found probably 50 or more different types. Wish i had the patience to photograph them all!
