Mills ArchiveMills Archive  This archive preserves and protects records of our milling heritage.  It has rescued over 2 million documents and images that might otherwise have ended up in a landfill site. 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.

The Archive’s flour milling history project From Quern to Computer now has a dedicated webpage where you can access all of the resources they have produced during the project: timelines, extended articles, a printed booklet and The Great British Mill Race.
