DERELICT FLOUR MILL

























The former Adelaide Milling Company mill site at Port Adelaide was the longest continuously serving flour milling enterprise in South Australia, operating from 1855 to 1980. Hart's Mill is the oldest building on the site having been completed in 1855 and was the largest and most technologically advanced mill in the state. It was designed to create an export market for the State's produce, and successfully shipped flour all over the world. It now sits derelict awaiting redevelopment. All it needs is a developer who is cashed up and an architect with a bit of imagination. Unfortunately those two ingredients don't seem to be found in combination here. [link]
