This was site two on our day out in Ramsgate. To be honest I wasn't expecting too much from this site but was pleasantly surprised. The old Mill building was a very interesting place to wander around with a fair amount or machinery still in place.

History
The Ramsgate Flour Mill was built in 1865, and closed in 2005 when the site was sold by Rank Hovis to a private developer, as it was no longer commercially viable. The mill survived two world wars, but sustained heavy bombing during World War 2.
A planning application has been submitted for residential redevelopment for a total of 72 apartments and 17 dwellinghouses comprising; change of use, partial demolition, extension & residential conversion of main mill building and residential conversion of ancillary office buildings.

The last site on the list was a big fail and could have been a 'very' big fail if I'd kept walking though that undergrowth :D
