Joseph and Jonah Hadley's City Flour Mills, June 2005. This photograph shows the Mill after renovation was completed. The upper floors are now residential, and the ground floor will be occupied by a restaurant-pub. The view is looking from the Docks toward Gloucester Cathedral (seen in the background). Grain, much of it from the Ukraine and Canada, was carried by wagon from the barges to the Mill. It is believe that the steam engine was on the ground floor of the central building. The building to the left, of typical Gloucestershire stone, was the Mill's office. The one on the right is a warehouse.
