Visited this a few years back. I heard that it was going to auction so thought I would go check it out. After finding a gap into the grounds it seemed there are was no way in. But managed to find a tight squeeze in. I was quite excited to see this after looking up from outside seeing the upper floors in a state. But I once in I could only get to the first two floors and not the top two. There was lots of converted offices inside and warehouse. Luckily there was quite a few original features to see. The mill was originally one of three mills on the waveny. The mill was built on the original site in 1862 and was built James Maxim Smith and Lewis ball. It was built in a tender which included the price of the mill to be built at a cost of £1,069 and an additional cost £454.1.5 for the machinery. It had a cottage attached and a steam engine house. Ancillary buildings were built on the site in 1962.. in 1975 it had a £250, 000 refit which tripled production. It was a flour mill what changed to producing animal feed. It was bought by hovis in 1977 and sold in in 1982 for a hundred thousand. It was used as a builders merchants and a garden centre. When it went for auction it had a guide price of £250,000 but went for sale £130,000 more than the guide price. The owner wants to convert it too business use, in the newer warehouse building and hopes to convert the rest of the mill for his motorcycle business. And pics I have seen he seems to be doing a great job on what looked quite a mamoth task. And it's great he is keeping the outside machinery and to restore them. Would love to go back

It always astonishes me the things people leave behind in the office when they abandon their businesses. I would love to look through some of those box files to get a feel for the sort of things they made, who they sold them too, what materials they used etc It would bring the place even more back to life and somehow add pathos.
Great job!
