The Mill Physical Plan
The Mill from the west side.
c. 1960. BCMM # 13511
The Mill is as fascinating on the inside as it is dominating on the outside. It towers over the town of Britannia Beach, and within its walls there is a mass of intricate industrial design. Each of the eight floors has a system of handrails, platforms, conveyors and machines. Between each level, a snake-like stairway links floors and sub-floors, leading up to the highest reaches of the mighty building.
Although most of the Mill is not accessible to the public, we can delve into the innermost recesses of the building through animation, video and blueprints, to reveal what it was like when it was operational and what it looks like today. Take an unprecedented journey through the Mill and discover its physical beauty.
