What we offer

Free and reduced price attendance at our dedicated training workshops.

Each workshop training place has a market value of £100. Every year, Heritage Partners may send one delegate per workshop at no charge. High-quality support materials are provided for you to keep and use for future reference.

An example workshop:

Support and training in how to care for material

This workshop addresses caring for your collection, covering important topics such as:

  • How to look after your material;
  • How to store it;
  • How to record what you have and how to retrieve it.

Other workshop topics include recording, research and publication as well as study days on a mill or specific topic.

Archiving advice and assistance

As a Heritage Partner, you have access to specialist archiving advice and assistance by phone and email.

Display your archive on our website

We can make available a space on our online catalogue where you can upload items from your archive. See examples here.

Research services

You will enjoy a reduced fee (and free initial time allocation) when we conduct research on your behalf, using both catalogued and uncatalogued material as well as the rich collection of mill books in our Library. You may request high-resolution scanned images from our image bank.

Copyright benefits

For non-commercial use such as for small educational exhibitions and display boards, we can usually waive copyright fees altogether depending upon the requirement. For commercial use such as in films or larger scale publications, you benefit from much-reduced copyright fees. It is always worth enquiring first as we will take into account the particular circumstances when calculating copyright fees.

Dedicated web page

Our popular website will feature a dedicated page for your organisation, and you may provide us with the information you wish us to publish on our site.

Membership fees for Heritage Partners start at £100 paid annually.
