Abbey Mill in Bradford-on-Avon

Abbey Mill in Bradford-on-Avon was built in 1857 by Richard Gane as a cloth factory. By 1902, Abbey Mill had closed and remained empty until 1915 when it was used for the manufacture of rubber products by the George Spencer Moulton company. In 1956, that company, including the Abbey Mill, was acquired by Avon Rubber. Abbey Mill has now been converted into retirement apartments.
