After visiting this place back in October it was time to return over the weekend with Rookie, Appo & OneByOne.

After getting lost, The weather turning out sh*te but then drastically improving and running from the police after being clocked in big buildings the night before I was glad to be back inside this place.

After using the same great entrance as last time we saw a lot of this place that we had missed on the previous visit.

The Spillers Millennium Mills was designed and built in 1905 by William Vernon and Sons and bought by Spillers shortly in the months afterwards. The Spillers Millennium Mills was partially destroyed by a massive explosion at the neighbouring Brunner Mond’s Soda Ash suppliers twelve years after it was built in 1917.

The 1970`s saw the decline of use and the docks & building itself were de-commissioned in the mid 1980’s when Spillers moved their milling works to Tilbury. The mills were also used in various films and several music videos, including Arctic Monkey's "Fluorescent Adolescent" and also the "Ashes to Ashes" TV series.

1988 Docklands Concert Jean Michel Jarre

The Mill was also used as a back drop for Jean Michel Jarre's 1988 Destination Docklands Concerts , with all the images projected onto this building (Google Jarre Docklands for pix), and I think thats why the building was painted white, as can be seen in these excellent pix........I was there back in 1988, and it rained.......
