Abbey Mill (2), Mill Street, Tewkesbury
Abbey Mill (2), Mill Street, Tewkesbury
The mill, sometimes called Tewkesbury Mill, is a Grade II listed building. The present mill dates from 1793, but there are records showing that a mill or mills have been on this site since at least 1190. The mill sits beside the Mill Avon, which is a water channel constructed by the monks of Tewkesbury Abbey. The mill is sometimes called Abel Fletcher's Mill, which is a reference to a fictional mill in a once popular Victorian novel "John Halifax, Gentleman", by Dinah Craik, which was first published in 1856. The novel's setting of Norton Bury was based on the town of Tewkesbury.
