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.

It is with great regret that we have decided to postpone all our 250th anniversary celebrations until 2021 but we hope you will support us when we actually manage to have our big anniversary party. We will not be open on Easter Monday and the mini millers session on 23rd May has also been cancelled. We will be reviewing future events nearer the time in light of government guidance. We do appreciate your support and we are in a lot better position than many small local businesses as we are run by volunteers so if you get a chance to support small businesses please do so as they need your help. #holgatewindmill #holgate #closure #cancelledevent #visityork #visityorkshire #everythingyork #york360 #york ...

The scarecrow's at the windmill are fabulous. The children loved finding all of the objects from 'The Scarecrow's Wedding' story around the mill. The snail was a bit hit. Well done Anna and Jen. ... See MoreSee Less
