    Default Healings Mill, Twekesbury - June 2010


    Continuing my favourite summer explores.. Fantastic summer evening by the banks of the River Avon in Tweksbury.

    Closed in 2006 after being in use since 1865. The grain used to be shipped up the river Severn from Avonmouth in traditional grain barges. Mothballed untill this summer when they started to remove the machinery. I don't think I'll ever see a mill quite as intact as this. Structurally the silo building to the left is starting to fall into the river, hence the lack of interested developers - otherwise they'd be snapping it up yesterday as it's in a beautiful location. I think it may be listed too.

    lovely looking building. Hope they don't let it fall in the river.
    Some days you wake and immediately start to worry. Nothing in particular is wrong, it's just the suspicion that forces are aligning quietly and there will be trouble

    Default Love it!


    Looks awesome! Was it sinking? there isn't much they could as it would cost to much to repair and regain the building, so the probbability of it getting knocked down is great. So there isnt much more time to go have a look at it.

    Zero reports, zero participation and then a PM asking for info tends to offend - I delete such PM's so don't waste your time.
