The Millennium Mills is a derelict turn of 20th century flour mill in West Silvertown on the south side of the Royal Victoria Dock
Millennium Mills was designed and built by millers William Vernon & Sons of West Float, Birkenhead in 1905. Vernon and Sons named the mill after their most successful product, a flour variety which they called “Millennium Flour” after winning the “The Miller Challenge Cup” at the 1899 International Bakers Exhibition.
On 21 April 2015, Newham Council gave planning permission to The Silvertown Partnership for a new £3.5billion redevelopment of the area, including Millennium Mills. The building will become a centre for start-up businesses.
