    After a day at work i cannot think of a better way to spend a few hours chillin ;)

    Harvington Mill is Located on the river Avon near Evesham, Harvington Mill is a grade II listed building, listed since July 1994. It originates from around the year 1800, and in the early 1900s the machinery replaced and upgraded.

    It consists of two parts - the main 3 storey block which has sadly had the original slate tile roof replaced with corrugated steel cladding, and a second 2 storey block on the east end. There was at one point an extension to the main block but this has since been demolished. The main water wheel was on the exterior of the west end (main block) and a second bypass wheel was located between the two blocks.

    The outside wheel is nearly entirely rotten away, leaving only parts of the iron frame, but the bypass wheel is more complete with most of the beams that braced the frame also in tact. Unfortunately the original wooden buckets have all long since fallen away.

    The interior is largely stripped out, but retains the original (1900s) primary gearing and additional gears and bearings.

    Most of the water has now been diverted around the mill and very little passes through save for when the waters are very high. At some point restoration work begun on the mill, but has not been active on site for quite some time. The building has since been locked up and sadly nature is beginning to take it back.
