123.Grande Moulin De Paris

From outside the perimeter wall it looked amazing:


Why don’t mills look like this in the UK?


Standing close to it it feels imposing, almost threatening:


I love the way that the architectural detailing has been carried on to every little outbuilding:


Admittedly inside is a massive disappointment. It’s been derelict some 20 odd years, and it’s location meant it was trashed after 5 years. It’s just a shell, with every inch covered in graffiti.


Ground floor:


On the upper floors there isn’t much by way of floors, only really beams:


Where there were bits of floor, mainly around stairs, they were rotten, and full of holes.


Climbing the tower was a little hairy, I’m used to not having a handrail, but the outside wall was also full of human sized holes. Leaning down over the edge was unpleasant…




From t’other end, shiowing modern extension:


Finish with this external, the graffiti is a view around 10 paces forward of this wall:

Cheers for looking.
