National Mills Weekend
is on May 12th & 13th 2018

Information for mill owners

This page contains information for those organising events for National Mills Weekend 2018

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 2018, which is to be arranged, or to the Real Bread Campaign's Real Bread Week.

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.

A new aid for visiting mills, especially over National Mills Weekend.
Those of you with Android on your phone can install a free app that means you can have the information from the website with you, even when you are out and about, quite possibly without an internet connection to contact the site. You can get it at: 
The app links with your other apps, such as mapping to give you directions to the various mills, and if you do have an internet connection, you can use it to pull up more information about many of the mills from Windmill World and the Mills Archive.
The app will be updated as details of this year's Mills Weekend are finalized at various mills.
