Please visit the High Salvington Windmill web site for more details of personnel and activities. This Trust web site is intended, predominantly, for members and volunters, collectively referred to as "Friends", who raise funds and contribute their time to help maintain and operate both High Salvington Windmill and the Glynde Wind Pump.

After Worthing Borough Council bought High Salvington Windmill in 1959, they spent a lot of money on several bouts of repair and maintenance. After extensive gale-damage in 1976, they explored alternative options to preserve the mill. Two groups of people came together in two separate organisations. Councillors, concerned with not losing the 18th Century post mill formed the High Salvington Mill Trust, while local residents, willing to volunteer their time and skills, formed the Friends of High Salvington Windmill. Officially, the Friends of High Salvington Windmill became a subcommittee of the High Salvingon Mill Trust.

With the Mill Trust procuring a lease from the Council, and enthusiastic Friends tackling vital maintenance with growing skill and ambition, these two organisations worked side-by-side, over the last few decades, to visually restore the windmill to working order, resuming the grinding of flour in 1991. Since 2001, the Trust and Friends have merged, allowing the combined organisation, reconstituted as a non-profit organisation, to focus on the fund-raising, maintenance and operation of the Windmill.

Since becoming a Company Limited by Guarantee, the Trust has purchased and restored the Glynde Wind Pump, established an Archive and a team of Archivists to manage it and is currently providing space for volunteers to develop replacement sails for West Blatchington Mill.

We say "visually restored" due to the weakness of one of the two restored wheels preventing us from operating some of the machinery in the mill, including one of the two pairs of mill stones. If we were willing to replace original woodwork now saturated with preserving resins for stronger new wood, then we could operate everything and describe the mill as "fully restored".
