I am delighted to announce that here at the Mills Archive, we have been successful in gaining a grant from the UK’s Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project that is about to get under way. Extending until 2018, we will use the £68,200 grant to preserve records of the history of flour milling, from its ancient origins up to the present day, and to tell this story to you and to people around the world.

Participatory elements in the project, “From Quern to Computer”, mean that individuals and milling firms will have plenty of opportunities to get involved, not only in learning about the story (even the most knowledgeable mill enthusiast may be surprised at what they discover) but also in actively shaping the story for future generations and ensuring that key moments in history are recorded and not forgotten.
