Mills Open to the Public in the Midland Counties
This leaflet is published annually by the Midland Mills Group to promote those mills in the general Midland region of the United Kingdom. It is our aim to distribute the leaflet as widely as possible, not only in the Midland region but also in neighbouring regions such as Lincolnshire, South Yorkshire, Cheshire and the Welsh border country. Volunteer members deliver parcels of leaflets to a large number of outlets such as Tourist Information Offices, Libraries, Museums, and other tourist attractions. Also all members receive a leaflet with their Spring Newsletter.
The leaflet contains details of over 40 mills that are open during the year to members of the public. Each entry gives contact details and directions for the mills, together with a brief description and a picture of each mill. The leaflet also contains a map for easily identifying each mill’s location. For a list of mills included in the leaflets, click HERE
