TQ4080 : Millennium Mills, Mill Road (1)

taken 8 years ago, near to London City Airport, Newham, Great Britain

Millennium Mills, Mill Road (1)
Millennium Mills, Mill Road (1)
A notable landmark, probably as much for its celebrated state of dereliction as much as its size or its very survival. Its decay has made it a favoured TV and film location, one of very few sites suited to evoking the country's industrial past or gritty 1970s crime busting. The part seen here dates from 1933, other parts were rebuilt in 1954 after bomb damage (TQ4080 : Spillers Millennium Mills, West Façade and TQ4180 : Millennium Mills, Mill Road (3)). All this for Spillers, flour millers and animal feed producers. Like Battersea Power Station, redevelopment schemes have come and gone the way of most of the other mills. Another mixed use scheme will be along shortly.
