Mills and Engineering Firms are what I would term Industrial. Being from the North, it’s going to be mostly the former type.
We have hundreds of the things knocking around, or that used to be the case. There are still a few abandoned ones but many have been demolished or refurbished into offices or even flats.
Mills tend to look quite ‘samey’ within but are some of the most accessible locations for a beginner Urban Explorer. Fully expect to be creeped out and startled by pigeons who take great pleasure in making the likes of us jump and swear accordingly.
Mill basements are some of the creepiest places I have ever experienced. They are not to be explored alone and you will need some hefty lighting equipment if you want to capture those moments.
Although mills tend to be overlooked due to ‘more pictures of pillars‘, I have taken some great shots in them and am not deterred by visiting more in the future.
