The Stotfold Mill Preservation Trust was set up as a charity to restore the mill to working condition and transform the adjoining meadows into a nature reserve.  In 2006, after many years dedicated work by volunteers and specialists, corn was once again ground in Stotfold Mill.  The Nature Reserve was officially opened in June 2011.

Today the Mill and Nature Reserve have over 165 active volunteers who work in specialist teams, helping to keep the wheels of history turning.
