Welcome to Holgate Windmill

Holgate Windmill, York’s last surviving windmill and the oldest 5-sailed windmill in the country is now fully restored and producing traditional stone-ground flour.

Our Windmill is currently closed for visits because of Covid-19 but the mill shop is still open for flour sales every Saturday morning.

In our windmill shop, which is open tomorrow between 10 and 12, we sell wholemeal wheat and spelt flour. Spelt can be used for bread but also makes a great shortbread. #wholemeal #wholemealbread #wholemealflour #spelt #homebaking #bakingbread #homemadebread #shortbread #speltflour #speltshortbread ...
