The Mill Building was split into two main sections. The first was completely stripped, now forming one huge cavernous room with doors opening into empty space.

It was huge and these photographs do little to convey the sheer size of this part of the building.

Most of the floor was now flooded; ironic as the mine itself was liable to flooding as well. Getting around was difficult, but bobbing metal sheets and sunken concrete blocks provided industrial-style stepping stones for everyone to get around.

Only one control panel remained, high up on one of the supporting walls, out of each of the salvage teams and savage vandals.

The other half of the building still retained its floors, and resembled an adult climbing frame of twisted metal and concrete. There was nothing for it; we'd go up.
