The Town Mill is owned and operated by The Town Mill Trust. Over the ten-year period from 1991, the volunteers who had formed the Trust, led by David West, raised renovation funds of some £800,000 from individuals, local authorities, the Rural Development Commission, and the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Trust formally took ownership of the mill from West Dorset District Council in January 1995.
