The mill survey was carried out from 1929 onwards and led to the creation of the Mills Section of the SPAB. Further information can be found in the SPAB's annual reports for 1929 onwards.
The files were retained by the SPAB and continued to be added to into the middle of the twentieth century. Some were transferred to the Mills Archive with the SPAB Mills Section Collection in 2003. Others were retained in the basement at Spital Square with the other mill files (SPAB-BAS) and transferred to the Mills Archive with these in October 2015. The files have now been reassembled in alphabetical order. Certain counties are missing.
