Healings Mill was built for Samuel Healing in 1865. When built, it was considered to be the largest and most modern flour mill in the world, producing 25 sacks of flour an hour in 1892. Throughout the course of the Mills history it has been accessed by road via a handsome cast-iron bridge, by rail via the Tewkesbury to Upton-upon-Severn railway line, and by canal/river barge via the River Avon. Barges were used right up until 1998, as the mill had two barges named Chaceley and Tirley which transported grain to the mill from Avonmouth and Sharpness. 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, but in 2006 they announced the closure of the mill. It milled flour for the last time on October 20th, 2006, ending 140 years of milling on the site.
