Midland Mills Group

The Midland Wind and Water Mills Group, sometimes known as the Midland Mills Group or MMG, is a voluntary, non-profit making, independent society for mill enthusiasts. The Society was founded in 1976 and is concerned with the study of the history and technology of mills of all types and especially their preservation and restoration. We are also interested in the generation of renewable energy using natural resources. Our members have a wide range of ages and background with interests covering all aspect of mills and milling:- historical, technical, practical, or “just interested”.

Our members mainly live in the Midland counties of England, i.e. in the West Midlands, Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire but we have members from many other places in the United Kingdom and some reside abroad.
