Healings Mill - Tewkesbury

(Well here is my first report, it's local to me so I thought I would give it a go. I have noticed that it has been done before so not many of you might like it. i'm sure I will get better with practice)

History​

Parts of the mill dated to 1865 when it was built for Healings and it was once thought to be the largest and most modern flour mill in the world.

The Mill has, in the course of its history, had three forms of transport in and out: road, railway, and canal and river barge. Whilst the railway line was brought up along with the rest of the Tewkesbury to Upton-upon-Severn railway line (originally running to Malvern) in 1961.

The mill was purchased by Allied Mills in the 1970s, and was completely refurbished and fitted out with brand new machinery. It was in turn taken over by ADM Milling.

The two barges “Chaceleyâ€￾ and “Tirleyâ€￾ remained in service right up to 1998 transporting grain from Avonmouth and Sharpness to the plant. However, the mill closed in November 2006, ending at least 800 years of milling in Tewkesbury and 140 years of milling on that particular site. The two barges were also sold and left Tewkesbury for the last time in March 2007.​

I was only just thinking of this place the other day!...It was May 2011 when I last had a look around this place. Does anyone know if it's still standing?
