Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May   National Mills Weekend
SPAB Mills Section Logo

For many years the Mills Section of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings has organised National Mills Weekend (formerly "National Mills Day"), a celebration of Britain's milling heritage.

Wind and water are sustainable power sources, used for hundreds of years in Britain in the production of natural food.

There are currently more than 100 working mills capable of producing natural, stoneground flour and many of these will be open to the public during National Mills Weekend.

In addition, over the weekend, a further 300 mills throughout the country will be welcoming visitors. Some working mills are more than 300 years old yet still efficiently doing the job in the 21st century that they were built and designed for.

The National Mills Weekend will take place on Saturday 11th - Sunday 12th May, with the theme 'Enjoy Your Mill - Get Involved'.

If you own or manage a Sussex mill and would like to take part in National Mills Weekend, please submit your details to us.

Book Fair at High Salvington Windmill
High Salvington Windmill
The windmill took over the well- established book fair, which had previously been run by a local group for charity, some eight years ago. Every year we hold a special afternoon for book enthusiasts. Novels, history, travel, sport - our book fair has something for everyone.

In 2023, we invited local authors to come and display their works. They reported a lot of interest in their publications and will probably repeat it in 2024.

Angela McMillan manages the books. If you wish to donate books, please see our contacts page to send her an email.

We are seeking fiction, mostly in paperback and do not need hardbacks and reference works.
