Become a friend of Kersey Mill
If you feel that you have any relevant skill, ideas, enthusiasm or fundraising ideas and would like to become a Friend of Kersey Mill and help rescue and restore this magnificent building then we would love to hear from you. Becoming a friend of Kersey Mill costs nothing, your input, help and thoughts are what the Mill requires. It was a fine Mill described by Suffolk Mills Group as the Zenith of the development of water and engine-driven stone mills and was regarded as one of the finest white flour mills of its time. Today it still houses much of its original machinery. Restoring the Mill and its machinery is something we would dearly like to do and we would sincerely welcome any input you could offer.

How you can get involved today
Sponsor a Tooth - Would you be able to sponsor a tooth?
This is how it works; Each tooth is painstakingly made from kiln dried oak. Each tooth that makes up the Pit Wheel will be numbered. The numbers and corresponding sponsors name will be displayed on a plaque next to the Pit Wheel which will remain as a memento and recognition of the kind sponsors for future gerations to see.
Each tooth sponsorship will be £50 sponsorship . Advertising receipt provided for companies wishing to offset costs.
A huge thank you to all those that have already sponsored a tooth, click here to see our current list of sponsors.
