Philo Mill House

Saturday, July 6th, 2013
I was a City kid and I remember my shock on first exploring the Valley and seeing this Philo mill house, which is still there but now apparently abandoned. In what alien world had I landed? Questions that had never occured to me when I was younger suddenly appeared. Why was this house so unlike all my friends houses? Where was the swimming pool and the bomb shelter? I would soon learn the answer to those questions.
