The Hampshire Mills Group has published three volumes of the Mills and Millers of Hampshire. 

The concept for the books is to make available to you in a convenient and easily accessed way some of the mass of historical data held in our records, and to put it into context with what is there now.  Also to do this in a way that is attractive to all readers, whether you have an interest in the landscape and industrial heritage of the county, are a mill expert or are really focussed on tracing family history.

The Archivist of the Hampshire Mills Group (HMG) Tony Yoward, and his late wife Mary, researched and collected information about the mills and the millers for many years.  Their work has been supplemented by contributions from other members of the HMG, and in earlier times the Southampton University Industrial Archaeology Group.

These are a most comprehensive compendium of information about the mills, the millers and mill owners.  Sources include Insurance company policies, church and civic records, local newspaper archives and personal knowledge, and the reference to the source is given.

There are articles on Hampshire and its Mills, an introduction to the watermill, the work of the Hampshire Mills Group and colourful maps of the rivers of the county.

The Hon Ralph Montagu has kindly written a foreword.  His estate at Beaulieu has a tide mill, which is included in Volume Two.

The books are available through this website Buy Books  and also directly from the group, and in local book shops.
