Albion Mills

Albion Mills, located in Southwark, London, was the first steam-powered commercial flour mill in the UK. The mill was completed in 1786 and gutted by fire in 1791. The gutted site was reportedly the inspiration for the description of “dark Satanic mills” in William Blake’s poem “And did those feet in ancient time” (c. 1808), and the name Albion Mills has often been interpreted as referring to the early Industrial Revolution.
