Hampshire Mills Group Teamwork - It’s Taking Part That Counts

Want a bit more exercise?  Fancy learning to work a watermill or a windmill?  Enjoy being active outdoors? Or are you just content to make notes, take a few photographs or like to research mills and their families; write poems, articles or try new flour based recipes.  If so, why not join in the action and help to maintain our industrial heritage?

We tackle a wide variety of jobs: weed clearance on land and in waterways, operating mills to produce flour, telling the public all about the mill they are in and selling them flour – and advising how to bake with it, using the internet, libraries and record offices for researching mills, their past owners and families, recording activities both in note form and with a camera. Join us in re-creating yesterday’s industry for today, tomorrow, forever?

Damping the grain

and when it is done

hoisting to the bin floor

meanwhile, clearing the path


We also like visiting other types of mill all over Britain such as these photos show:  Stroudwater Textile Mills, mills in Herefordshire, Morse’s Wind Engine Park in Norfolk, and on a SPAB tour in Somerset.
