The Mills Archive

  • The Mills Archive was established in 2002 as a permanent repository for historical and contemporary material on traditional mills and milling, and to make that material available for public inspection and use in research and learning. It has rescued over 1 million documents and images that might otherwise have ended up in a landfill site. The Mills Archive is one of the world’s great mill collections. It is an Aladdin’s cave filled with memories, free to users and run by volunteers. The collections show the rich and diverse crafts, buildings, machinery, equipment and people involved with mills in the UK and around the world. We believe in the cultural and educational values of traditional mills and wish to turn that into practical support. We extend a warm welcome to family, local, national and international historians, as well as to those who simply want to find out more about our milling heritage.
