Wind and Watermill Collections

Special Collections hold four collections of 20th century mill material.

The collections are largely photographic, but also include cuttings, letters, books, pamphlets and more. The majority of our mill collections focus on UK windmills, with Kent and Sussex being particularly well represented, but you can also find images of mills in Europe and beyond.
