This year’s exhibition is called The Lost Windmills of York and will be on show until the end of the season’s open days. It reveals the sites, images and stories of many of York’s lost mills. Anna Cook, our archivist would like to hear from anyone with images or stories of any York mills to contact us via this website so more can be added.
