Not sure of the company as there seem to be a few with offices in Smethwick.
The future of this building is uncertain as it will be difficult to convert to flats etc, ( No natural light at centre).

Like Krypton said that looks massive! Excellent shots there too. Reminds me a lot of the Ice House in Grimsby.:)

Nice! I know this building well, I think it's called Downing's Malthouse.

Are these shots from upstairs as well as downstairs?

All downstairs, camera batteries and back-up u/s! Watch out for holes in upper floors.

Excellent find. Looks like a good place for a good mooch around.
Nice ghost signage on the front, too. Cheers, Engineer. :)

Thanks Foxy, plenty there but be quick as development is on-going.
Next door warehouse (and mill I suspect).

It's the Foster Bros Oil and Cake Mill. There used to be a massive grain silo identical to the one in Kidlington across the canal but it's been demoed now :(

Anything interesing upstairs in the first mill?

Spotted this place a while ago on the way back from South Wales, meant to put it up as a lead but forgot. Good to see inside.

Had my eye on this for some time as well.
Have been put off visiting for a while due to all the new development work on the site but now thats all but done it looks well worth a look.
Good pics - will have a go myself soon.
