Mill Repair Fund

The Mills Section gives out small grants for repairs to windmills and watermills from the Mill Repair Fund.

Grants are awarded to contribute towards emergency repairs or holding repairs to a mill; routine maintenance where a mill owner or volunteer group is undertaking work that would not be eligible for grant aid from other bodies; and to augment grants from other bodies contributing towards mill repair costs.

Decisions on grants are made quarterly during the year (in February, May, August and November). The maximum grant amount is £5,000, with most grants awarded in the region of £500-£1,000.
