A view of the Severus Hills at Holgate, in 1736, The windmill was not built until 1770 but the hills are clearly an ideal site for a mill.

If you are interested in the history of the village a new group has been created to explore, learn and celebrate the many layers of this fascinating place. www.facebook.com/groups/389978099030561
