Mills and Milling in Berkshire and Surrounding Districts

Elizabeth Trout of the Mills Archive explains the role of mills and millers with particular reference to the many watermills on Berkshire's rivers. The archive's collections show the rich and diverse crafts, buildings, machinery, and equipment of Berkshire's mills, with a wealth of information about mill-owners and the people who worked in them - rich detail for family and social historians alike.
