BOCM Pauls’ Mill – Wymondham

Hiding deep within the Norfolk countryside is a small abandoned farm-food processing plant. Formerly operated by BOCM Pauls, it closed in 1996. As with most places I visit, there are plans to build on the site, but I doubt anything will happen for ages, if at all…

Being closed for 12 years + tons of pigeons + pig food remnants everywhere + hot summery day = grossest explore ever.

The big tall bit is about 6-8 storeys high and has stairs going to the top.

Inside

Inside looks typically industrial. Metal stairs and structures fill the main building.

Control Room

I always enjoy finding control rooms. There’s just something cool about them, however big (or small) they are.
