The Mills Archive has been awarded Archive Service Accreditation, national recognition for the quality of their work caring for the vulnerable records of milling history.
Accreditation is the UK standard which recognises good performance in all areas of caring for historic records and making them available to public.
Achieving accredited status demonstrates that the Mills Archive has met clearly defined national standards relating to management and resourcing; the care of its unique collections and what the service offers to its entire range of users.
The Mills Archive is a registered charity, whose mission is to care for the records of windmills, watermills, and all other forms of mill throughout history, and make them freely available to the public for research and learning.
The Archive collaborates with existing mills through its partnership schemes, helping them to care for and provide access to their own records.
The Archive Service Accreditation Panel “praised the excellent website and the very strong documentation supporting the application, which was a model for a small, specialist service. They also strongly commended the service’s work with the wider mills heritage community and hope to see its support for that community continued and developed.”
Archivist Nathanael Hodge commented: “We’ve found the accreditation process very rewarding. Comparing our day to day work with national standards has challenged us to improve in many areas we might never have thought about. We’re very excited to hear that our application has been successful!”
