mills Generations of millers at Mildenham

This article published on 18th Jan 2003, relates the story of generations of millers at Mildenham Mill.

It starts with the last miller, Denis Watts, who retired in 1972, going back to his maternal grandfather, Henry Bill, miller in 1870. Other mills that the family worked include Belbroughton near Kidderminster, Rindleford Mill at Bridgnorth, and Porters Mill near Fernhill Heath.

There is also a link with the Danzey Green windmill at Avoncroft, where Max Sinclair was miller from 1980-1995, since he was part of the team who restored Mildenham Mill in the 1960s.
