Millennium Mills



Millennium Mills

Industrially decayed flour mill features in many films.

Location: Mill Road, West Silvertown

Description: This long derelict flour mill on the south side of the Royal Victoria Dock, between the Thames Barrier and the ExCel exhibition centre is finally undergoing redevelopment.

The industrial decay inspired backdrops in films and television shows such as Ashes to Ashes, Jean-Michel Jarre's Destination Docklands, and Derek Jarman's The Last of England. Jarman also filmed here in his music video for The Smiths single Ask.

In 1985, the former CWS mill nearby was used in the Terry Gilliam's dystopian film Brazil. Other films include The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2013), Trance (2013), Green Zone (2010), Twenty8k (2012). It also featured in video game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
