Does anyone have a Walter Crabtree as a distant relative? There is a Walter Crabtree plaque on the wall on the ground floor of the mill but we don’t know who he was or indeed why his name is here. We know he was not a miller and that he had no family connections to the mill. A Walter Crabtree was born in York in 1939 and was an electrician in the area – could it have been him? If you have any information we would love to hear from you. #holgatewindmill #holgatewindmillpreservationsociety #york #yorkresident #waltercrabtree #everythingyork #exploreyork #residentsofyork ...

Photo ( taken by Nick Ansell) posted on Facebook on 5 July 2014– the exact date of the Tour de France stage 2 departure from York racecourse. It shows the mill’s banner, one of many produced for a fantastic display round the city walls. A great memory of a fantastic day. #holgatewindmill #holgatewindmillpreservationsociety #tourdefrance #yorktourdefrance #2014 #5thjuly2014 #everythingyork #exploreyork #york ... See MoreSee Less

A lot of small shops worked hard to support their communities during lockdown and we hope they will continue to have your support now that the rules are being relaxed and the supermarkets are fully stocked. We regularly deliver to Ainsty Farm Shop, Costello’s Good Food Shop,
Fodder & Forage, The Greengrocer Of Acomb and Henshelwoods Delicatessen if you want to buy our flour when our mill shop is not open. #holgatewindmill #stonegroundflour #greengrocerofacomb #costellosgoodfoodshop #ainstyfarmshop #fodderandforage #henshelwoods #york #shoplocal
