The Mills Archive Trust
We had a visit this week from The Mills Archive Trust. The Archives hold a great deal of the world's great mill collections. It has rescued over 3 million documents photographic records of traditional and contemporary mills and milling, as well as similar structures dependent on traditional power sources.
It makes that material freely available for public inspection and use in research and learning. It is an Aladdin's cave filled with memories and free to users. The collections show the rich and diverse crafts, buildings, machinery, equipment and people involved with mills in the UK and around the world. Liz and Nathanael from the Archives came to visit and put a pleasing little piece together for us here.
