Custodial History

In the 1930s and 1940s, Stanley Freese gathered data on Buckinghamshire wind and watermills and wrote this up as a book, which was never published. The manuscripts were later passed to James Venn, who conducted further work on the windmills section which he intended to revise and publish; this was never completed. The watermill section was published in 2007 - see the introduction to this volume for further information on the history of the manuscripts.
