I've recently been projecting my slides and making digital photos of them. Way back in 1983, I acquired a load of glass plates of various mills which I passed on to the EKMG. Slides were made of the prints, and I have copies. On Facebook, there is a group for those interested in windmills - Windmill Hoppers. I posted the images there and many of them have been identified as Sussex mills - Bexhill windmill, Hellingly watermill and Dean's Mill, Lindfield. There are still some unidentified, but it looks as though the vast majority of them are Sussex mills.

Would you be interested in having copies for the SMG archives? The digital photos of the projected images are OK, but I'm prepared to make the slides available for copying as these would produce a better quality image. Unfortunately I don't have a scanner suitable to produce digital images direct from the slides but I'm sure we can arrange something.

I don't know whether or not you are on facebook, but if you are then search out the Windmill Hoppers and Watermill Hoppers groups. If you aren't on facebook, please consider joining.

217 (not included) is a Hampshire watermill, but the plate is badly damaged at top right.

As far as I can tell, these images are all out of copyright by virtue of the author being unknown, the images being in excess of 70 years old. I've included the unidentified images as, in my opinion, they are highly likely to be Sussex mills. If any of these should be identified then I would appreciate it if you could let me know.
