About Us - Who we are, what we do
The Welsh Mills Society was launched in October 1984.
The aims of the Society are to study, record, interpret and
publicise the wind and water mills of
Wales; to encourage general interest; to advise on their
preservation and use, and to encourage working millers.
The Society’s Annual General Meeting is held in October and a Spring regional
meeting, alternating annually between north and south Wales, is held in
The Welsh Mills Society arranges lectures, films, visits to mills,
demonstrations and courses on mill recording techniques and millwrighting as
well as actively publicising mills which are open to the public.

Melin, containing articles on subjects relating to the Welsh mills scene.
