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.

Come and visit us on one of our regular open days throughout the year to talk to our knowledgeable volunteers and see how it’s done, or purchase flour (and a wide range of other gifts) any Saturday morning, 10:00 till 12:00.
