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.
Click here 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
help us to keep these pages up to date by regularly checking the page for
your mill and telling our
about any changes.
