The History

History on this place is very hazy, its a water powered flour mill that much we know & I did pick this up from one site.
The mill was built in 1884; the previous structure was destroyed in a fire reported in the Sussex Advertiser, 30-9-1884. In the early twentieth century a two-sack roller plant was installed. A further fire in 1908 caused damage to the plant. Waterpower was used until 1945; a steam engine was used sparingly. After 1945 the mill relied on electricity.

The low breastshot waterwheel of 17ft diam. x 8ft 10in width was still in situ in the 1990s.

Planning permission to turn into 12 apartments was granted in 2008 but to date nothing seems to of happened.

The Explore
Thanks to Mookster for throwing us this one
Visited here while down Brighton on a holiday with my lad this summer, its a very easy explore although is a very sketchy building whos days are numbered if something dosent happen with it soon.

On first aproach its quite a structure

Inside the main tower the floors have gone leaving a breathtaking photogenic room.

The main rooms are pretty trashed & the higher floors are extremely dodgey!

But this corridor was nice

Across the way was some newer units that were presumably something to do with the mill in the later portion of its working lift
