The Journal of the Welsh Mills Society is published annually and usually contains three or four papers by members and others on mills and mill related topics. Melin 31 has just been printed and will be available to members from Saturday October 22nd. It is a reprint, with all the illustrations of the Report on a Survey of the Welsh Textile Industry by William P Crankshaw, which was commissioned by the University of Wales and published in 1927. The original publication is now difficult to find and not widely known, so the Welsh Mills Society is pleased to be able to make the Report available to a wider public.
The cover illustration by the artist Falcon Hildred depicts Cwm Mill in the valley of the Afon Leri at Talybont, Ceredigion.
Melin has the International Standard Serials Number ISSN 0952 746X
