Membership benefits

Discount in the Mills Archive Shop

Friends receive an automatic 10% discount on all purchases in our shop. This discount does not apply to post and packing charges, which are outside our control.

Exclusive private exhibitions/events

Come and see what happens behind the scenes. Two invitations to all our Garden Parties and Exhibitions.

A 6 monthly newsletter, Mill Memories

Our popular A5 newsletter features items from our collection, news of the Archive and features about the people involved. Back issues are all available online and you can chose to have the online version instead of the printed one.

Heavily discounted access to high-resolution images

Friends can purchase images of their choice at a discount of 80% of the public price. They must agree that these are for research and private study only.

Free Research

We offer Friends a yearly allowance of one hour’s free research by Archive staff (applicable once a Friend has been with us for a year). Subsequent research is charged at half the standard public rate.

Copyright privileges

Friends can request copyright fees (usually £50 per image) to be reduced or waived altogether. This benefit is particularly attractive to Friends writing newsletter articles, journal publications and guide books. Larger books may attract a small charge depending on circumstances.
