Millennium Mills, Mill Road (3)
Millennium Mills, Mill Road (3)
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 main block seen here dates from 1954, rebuilt after bomb damage, that on the left from 1933. 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.
However, at the time of writing a scheme has recently been approved and so soon it may be engulfed by the tide of gentrification which has submerged so much else. It's hard not to feel a tinge of regret about that, even if buildings are meant to be used.
