This great photo was taken from Murray Street between 1930 (when the sails were removed) and 1935 (when the miller's house was demolished). If you have any old photos of the mill please do share them! We are always interested in seeing new photos. #holgatewindmill #holgatewindmill #windmill #windmills #york #yorkwindmill #york #acomb ...
