I joined the Mills Section in 1976 after visiting mills in John Vince’s booklet ‘Discovering Windmills’. Speaking with millers and mill owners I realised at once that all mills need constant repair. A few years later I joined the Mills Section because I felt and still feel passionately for what they stand for: to protect our surviving wind and watermills. To do this they need not only members to support them but also financial help. I shall be leaving money to the Mills Section for specific areas of their work.
