Holgate Windmill

Holgate Windmill

Holgate Windmill
Holgate Windmill was built in 1770 and is Yorks last surviving windmill and the oldest 5-sailed windmill in the country. The Mill ground corn until the early 1930s using wind power and then continued with the aid of electric motors until production stopped entirely around 1933. In 2001 the Holgate Windmill Preservation Society was formed and through the dedication of its volunteers the mill is now fully restored and producing traditional stone-ground flour.

Windmill open days
Holgate Windmill will be open for visitors:-
Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday morning from 10:00 to 12:00. The mill will be in operation on the Wednesday and Friday sessions. From April to October Saturday opening will extend to 4.00pm. There is no need to book in advance.
