Visited with Weeble, who I’m sure will be along soon to post up her report. Actually managed to pick a nice sunny day for this one, although a nice approach in darkness before Mr. Secca turned up, a little too late to stop us! We’d already been on a recon on a previous day, and saw the silver van parked right in front of the entrance so knew exactly where to go. A nice simple climb over palisade later and we were in. Then to find the leap; massively underwhelming to say the least. The way it had been bigged-up in other reports we weren’t even sure that it was the leap at first. We spent a good number of hours in there, and managed to saunter out in the late morning, when Mr. Secca was elsewhere. A lovely explore.

A little History, not that anyone really needs it, given the amount of coverage this place has.

Ripped from Wiki: 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 forUrban Explorers despite high security, dangers of structural weakness, ten-storey drops and asbestos, and there are many reports and internal photos of the site.

With that being the case, on with the show…
