The Trustees of the charity are also directors of the company, and the Board of Trustees currently meets monthly.

The charity has already delivered a £380k refurbishment project on the mill’s engine house and is responsible for the ongoing refurbishment of the unique steam engine. The next phase of the development will see the twin mill buildings regenerated into a vibrant mix of leisure, business, community and sport uses.
