SPAB Mills Section

The Mills Section:

  • Protects hundreds of traditional windmills and watermills each year from proposals to demolish or damage them.

  • Campaigns for the sympathetic repair of mills, and works to return buildings and machinery to working order.
     
  • Circulates its newsletter, Mill news, to members four times per year.
     
  • Helps to find new owners for mills at risk by issuing a list of mills which are for sale.
     
  • Arranges a programme of events, including training courses, lectures, meetings and visits.
     
  • Works to raise public awareness of the need to save and conserve the country's dwindling number of wind and watermills by generating press interest.
     
  • Co-ordinates and publicises National Mills Weekend on the second weekend in May each year.
     
  • Supports the work of traditional millwrights across the UK.
     
  • Liaises with independent groups of international and UK molinologists.
     
  • Encourages the survival of the traditional miller and his or her craft.
     
  • Supports the care and development of our collections through the Mills Archive.
