National Mills Weekend

SPAB Mills Section

National Mills Weekend is the annual festival of our milling heritage and provides visitors with a fantastic opportunity to visit mills, many of which are not usually open to the public.

Until the advent of the steam engine, wind and watermills provided the only source of power for many different processes - from making flour, paper, cloth to hammering metal and extracting oils. Visitors can explore mills that produced, or still produce these products, some restored to working order, some derelict, some still working commercially.

The 2018 theme will be Mills and Wildlife

At Nutley Windmill they will be celebrating 50 years of the Mill's restoration. On Saturday 12th May they are having the grand opening of the Visitor Centre (Granary). They are very lucky that Rev Antony Shaw, one of the original team, is to cut the tape at 2 pm. A number of local dignitaries have said they are coming. Please join them and perhaps have some cake. The recommended parking is at Friends Clump, as there will be very limited parking at the mill on this day.
