National Mills Weekend
is on May 14th & 15th 2016

Information for mill owners

This page contains information for those organising events for National Mills Weekend.

You can take part for any length of time on either or both days, and only need to open your doors and welcome visitors. However, you may also consider organising family activities, or perhaps running a joint event with other mills in your area. If you do plan to run activities, we would recommend that you link them to our theme for 2016 of Vintage Power (not yet available) or to the Real Bread Campaign's Real Bread Maker Week.

for fun, easy creative activities to try out with your mill visitors and to give National Mills Weekend even more of an art theme.
These creative activities were developed by artist Fi Burke for Since Sliced Bread, a visual arts project exploring and celebrating the culture and history of windmills.
Since Sliced Bread is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. With support from the SPAB Mills Section. 

To make sure that you receive the latest information, please
e-mail us at  with the name of your mill and your contact details, and we'll add you to our mailing list.

Updating your mill page
On this site there is a separate page for every mill which we believe to be open to visitors on National Mills Weekend, both windmills and watermills. Please help us to keep these pages up to date by regularly checking the page for your mill and telling our Webmaster about any changes.
