Ludd's Mill was a fanzine edited by Andrew Darlington.

It began life as a community alternative and was 'rescued' by Darlington and poet Steve Sneyd, later editor of Data Dump. It was released in the 1970s in the UK.

The article "DIY'ing in the Bedroom - Yorkshire's Fanzines", from Ayup! Magazine, says, "Ludd's Mill, from Ossett, was an intelligent 'zine, the brain child of Andrew Darlington."

Ludd's Mill featured articles on various aspects of alternative culture, including music, art, books, fiction and poetry, with features on bands such as Devo, and The Fugs, among others and reviews of books, records and tapes.
