National Mills Weekend 2019

National Mills Weekend is the annual festival of our milling heritage and provides you with a fantastic opportunity to visit mills, many of which are not usually open to the public.

Until the advent of the steam engine, wind and watermills provided the only source of power for many different processes - from making flour, paper, cloth to hammering metal and extracting oils. You
can explore mills that produced, or still produce these products, some restored to working order, some derelict, some still working commercially.

Within easy reach of Kington if open, see National Mills Website
