Millennium Mills - London - May 2013

Recommended Posts

So This is my 5th visit to the place, if you don't know the history yet then visit my previous massive thread

:)http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/4607-Millennium-mills-4-visits-Pic-heavy!-2012

Anyway explored with Harry, Starlight and 1 non member, arrived at the site in the wee hours of the morning and made our way in.. access this time around was surprisingly easy with no one around we where very relaxed.

After helping Star after she made friends with a leap of faith and making sure she was ok after no realising her fear of heights ! [sorry ><] we made our way to the roof to be met with a foot deep water covered roof.. back in and to find an alternative staircase, not having to do this in the past made it more fun 'Shadd's .. you know where the ladder is ?' 'Nope d:' .. 'oh...' . Anywayyy on to the pics !

Lets star with a couple of rooftop photos

Now shortly after these photos, my camera took a rather large nock which defunked the aperture lever or light sensor resulting in all photos being near black unless at least 1 second exposure at isom 800 was used .. =/

The famous fans ;]

And you're forgiven, saved me the mental trauma of anticipating it, win!

Beastin set mate, brilliantly colourful nightscapes and really crisp details. Loved the older thread too but this one is a proper win :) Really need to get my arse there and get this done. Beautifully captured.

      A very early start for this one. And thanks for my invite from the other 2 lads I went with @GK-WAX and @albinojay arrived here in the pitch black early hours. Luckily we didn’t have any trouble finding our way inside. We’re we found ourselves a room to wait for it to come light enough to have a look around. Watching the bustop across the road. That’s one seriously busy bustop. And another 2 guys turned up giving us a surprise we exchanged a few word and we all carried on. Here’s a few photos and history..
      HISTORY
      Located in Southall, Middlesex, in the west of Greater London. The King’s Hall was built in 1916 and was designed by architect Sir Alfred Gelder of Hull. The King’s Hall building has a 3-storey red brick and stone facade. It was operated by the Uxbridge and Southall Wesleyan Mission and it was soon screening religious films.

      By 1926, it was operating as a regular cinema, still managed by the Methodist church.

      The King’s Hall Cinema was closed in 1937. It then reverted back to a Methodist Church use as the King’s Hall Methodist Church. They vacated the building in January 2013"

      Designed by Architect to the Metropolitan Police, John Dixon Butler FRIBA, the Greenwich Magistrates’ Court opened in 1909 with an integral police station. The Symmetrical frontage is faced in Portland Stone in a free Classical style and features a central semi-circular tablet with Royal Coat of Arms, carved in stone by Lawrence Turner.
       
      Inside, the entranceway leads to the former police station foyer which has a mosaic tiled floor with MP monogram (for Metropolitan Police) laid by Messrs Diespeker.  The foyer leads onto Court 1, the main courtroom which is toplit with a decorative plaster frieze around the light well and a monogram of Edward VII in plaster above the bench. The Courtroom has mostly original fittings and the bench is in a curved recess, up three steps. The court has its own custody suite. The suite consists of nine prison cells with associated facilities for booking in prisoners etc.
       
      Visited here with @AndyK! a few months back. We sat on this for a while as we were hoping to return and see if we missed any bits but haven't got around to it. Anyway, I think we saw all the best bits. Here are some of my photos to begin with, and a few taken by Andy at the end. I also poached the history from his website report, so cheers for that!
