Adopt the Rex Wailes Collection

The leading mill expert of his day, Wailes revolutionised the country’s attitude towards mills. He campaigned to survey the remaining windmills in Great Britain and acted as a Technical Advisor for the SPAB (Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings) for this project. An enlightening piece from his collection is his own annotated copy of the hugely successful book he wrote, English Windmills, which provides an insight into the mind of this influential man. Our Archivist wrote an article that gives a glimpse into this man's life.
