The Great British Mill Race – a competition where you can help us update our Mills Database by sending us your pictures and information – is now up and running. Send us information and pictures for any mill or mill site, from anywhere in the UK. The Race will be running until National Mills Weekend 2017. Over the summer, we’ll be focusing on different areas of the UK in turn to help us focus the search.
We want our mills database to be as up to date, accurate and useful as possible.
- Can you help us update our information for these mills?
- Can you tell us if these mills still exist?
- Do you know of mills in these areas not listed on our database?
We would love to receive a current picture of Marsh Mill – you can send us one via www.gbmillrace.org
However – there are lots of mills in the North West for which we have very little information, and certainly no up to date images, such as:
- Watermill, Ulverston
- Low Mill, Thurstonfield
- Grocer’s Warehouse, Manchester (water powered)
- Cranage Mill, Cranage
- Forge mill, Tetton
So please send us your North West mills pictures and information – we look forward to receiving your entries to the Great British Mill Race via www.gbmillrace.org. Next week, we’ll be focusing on the mills of the North East.
