Synopsis:  This book is the most extensive history of Wirral’s windmills and watermills ever produced.  It records around seventy mills, which stood on Wirral between the Domesday survey and the demise of traditional milling.  There are individual sections covering forty three mills – many of them ancient sites, which have rarely, if ever, been written about before.  References to mills are examined at each place, and efforts have been made to trace the history of milling at each location, from the first known records, until each mill fell into disuse. Where possible, the site of every mill has been identified on the present day landscape.  Features which remain have been described in detail, both remaining buildings and lesser archaeological features.

Paperback 21cm by 24.5cm, 263 pages, with appendixes and indexes, and 220 maps, photographs, and diagrams, many in full colour. ISBN: 978-1-910352-10-6

Synopsis:  Windmills were never as important a feature of the Hampshire economy as watermills;  none the less Ken Kirsopp has found a surprising amount of information on those known to have stood in the county during the past 800 or so years. 

The results of that research have been written up by Guy Blythman and published in the book, with some additional material included.  The Isle of Wight is dealt with at the same time. 

This is the most comprehensive book on the subject which has so far appeared and is the fourth volume in the Mills Archive Trust Research Publications series.  It complements the volumes on the county’s watermills recently published by Hampshire Mills Group.

Paperback A4, 116 pages, with appendixes and indexes, and maps, photographs, and diagrams, in black & white.  ISSN: 2051-6924
