There were two main buildings - the Silo designed to hold 34,000 tons of grain and the Flour Mill which also contained a warehouse and animal food mill.
To serve it the deep water berth was improved and the rail network extended along the Quayside - the rail tracks can still be seen inset into the concrete roads - waiting to catch the unwary cyclists.
Demolition began in June 2011 and you can see my latest photos here Spillers Tyne Mill Demolition Photos.
