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.

NEXT OPEN DAYS

The windmill will be open for visitors on Saturday July 2nd and Sunday July 3rd between 11am and 4pm.

On the Sunday there will a craft activity drop in session entitled “Pinwheels and mill towers”. A chance to look round the mill and be creative!

The shop is also open every Saturday between 10 am and noon for sale of flour and other windmill related goods.

So sorry to read of the death of Harry Gration. Harry was one of our patrons and we were delighted to be able to show him round the Windmill, where he was so interested in the restoration work. We thank him for his support and send our condolences to his family. #holgatewindmill #patron #HarryGration #looknorth #yorkwindmill ... See MoreSee Less
