CWS Flour Mills, Avonmouth Docks, Bristol

TRM DA
The CWS Flour Mills in Avonmouth Docks in Bristol. They can be seen from many parts of West Bristol including from the M5 Avonmouth Bridge. This building dates from 1907/08 and was designed by the CWS' own architect. It is largely built of reinforced concrete using the Mouchel-Hennebique system. This impressive flour mill adjoining Avonmouth Docks is now to be derelict. The building's stylegenerally is Classical, with nicely proportioned columns of windows between pilasters and some glazed lettering above the cornice. The mill is a iconic feature on the Avonmouth skyline and can be seen along with the nearby Spillers silo in the video for the song Magic Doors by local band Portishead. #Avonmouth #Bristol #concrete #CWS #derelict #Docks #Flour #industrial #Mills #port #Silo #TRM_DA
