We are delighted to announce that the New Year’s Honours for 2019 includes an MBE for Alan Stoyel.
Alan is one of the founders of the Mills Archive Trust and has previously been Chairman and long-time Committee Member of the SPAB Mills Section.
Over 60 years of active study and practical work on rescuing our water mill heritage, he has provided inspiration and support to many, not least as one of our trustees!
This long-overdue award is an important recognition of a lifetime’s voluntary effort and the importance of securing our milling heritage, both as physical structures and as historical records.
A wonderful way to start 2019!
