    Arrow HEALINGS FLOUR MILL. TEWKESBURY, Nov '12


    'Healings Flour Mill, Tewkesbury'




    This splendid old girldates back to 1865 and was once considered to be the largest and most modern flour mill in the world!
    Grain was brought in by road, rail and river, it must have been a major hive of activity at the height of its production.
    However, the mill closed its doors in November 2006 after 140 years of milling!
    It has recently been sold to the 'St Francis Group' who prepare sites for 'redevelopment.'



    Visited after a 'no go' in Cheltenham on the off chance that she was open and bugger me she was!!
    A really fascinating splore, so much amazing machinery and pipe work, most of it looking like its hardly been used! Mmmmm... Shiny!!
    Hope you enjoy the pics as much as I enjoyed takin 'em...








































    As always, thanks for lookin'...:)
    YOU AINT SEEN ME... RIGHT!!

    Blinding report, and yes that is a lot of pipes! Great photos.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?

    that is rather nice sir
    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.
