Rank Hovis or Clarence Mill Hull visited with old skool, thank's to Tassader for the info needed but when we got there(5.30am) the pikey's were already in there and made access very easy, we never met them but saw them leave with there haul of stolen treat's, they have stripped the place but thankfully they have not touched the wooden working's of the mill which are incredible i can't believe how large they are, i love this place absolutely fantastic explore well worth going if you haven't been already as there is talk of demolition and it would be a shame to miss this one.
