The Millennium Mills building has hosted gangsters and terrorists, with indie bands galore. The US Military have been seen there on more than one occasion and it seems to be a favourite location for director Danny Boyle.
Bears, however, are rarely seen around Silvertown, which makes the appearance of Michael Bond’s much-loved Paddington bear well worth mentioning.
What the famous Peruvian export made of the ambitious redevelopment plans for Silvertown was not recorded. If nothing else, the movie will be among the last to immortalise the iconic Millennium Mills before its dramatic transformation.
