More from our little explore of Millennium Mills with @derelictlondon 🖤
It’s not often these days that I post photos to my grid, let alone so soon after the event but still buzzing from managing to get what is described as the golden ticket for a tour of Millennium Mills. I missed out during Open House but once dates were announced for this weekend for the last ever viewing of the derelict building before the keys are handed to the developer I set three alarms, kept refreshing the page and was gob smacked when I bagged two tickets for today. All tickets gone in 20 seconds apparently! A long climb up to the top to the roof for the most fabulous views over Docklands and a great tour led by @derelictlondon thank you! More photos to follow✌🏻
Had a little holiday in Norfolk and Suffolk last week, and as usual, documented everything on stories and forget to actually post anything on my grid. This was my favourite Banksy in his recent flurry across the coast 🦀
Holy Island 🖤 Lindisfarne Castle 🏰
Going Underground... 👷🏻♀️ One of my favourite things aside from giant concrete structures are tunnels! Especially the kind where you have to wear a hard hat and carry a powerful torch 👏🏻 There’s a 19th century waggonway tunnel under the streets of #Ouseburn #Newcastle that use to transport the coal down to the Tyne river to transport to London. It closed down in the 1860s and later repurposed as an #airraidshelter during WWII. They were open 24 hrs a day, and also used by locals as a safe underground passage way. One man stayed in the tunnel for the whole duration of the war with his family bringing him food and water. Imagine?! The tour guides are knowledgable, funny and engaging. At the moment during restrictions you can book a tour for 2-6 people for your family or support bubble. So it’s safe and a bonus private tour!
Two hours sailing round the Farne Islands was magical 🖤 Puffins, guillemots, and lots of bird poo. Mask and hat are essential 😜
