Lytham Heritage Group was established in 1987 to promote the history and heritage of the Ancient Parish of Lytham, which includes St Annes, Heyhouses, Ansdell and Lytham. The Group now has a wide range of facilities including: Lytham Heritage Centre for exhibitions; the Archive Centre based in Lytham Library; and Lytham Windmill Museum based, of course, in Lytham Windmill.
This site has been designed to share records and history relating to traditional mills and milling.
It contains many thousands of digital images and documents as well as extensive databases of information.
It is run by the Mills Archive Trust, an educational charity registered in the UK.
The web site and catalogue have been developed with financial assistance form the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The Country Trust's scheme is simple, cost-effective and unique. They arrange for schools selected by the Trust from disadvantaged areas of towns and cities to visit hosts chosen by the Trust for their ability to offer children a stimulating glimpse of life in the countryside. The hosts make no charge for these visits, the Trust organizes the visits and helps the schools with the cost of transport and accommodation.
