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 between 10 and 12. We are also take orders each week for 5kg bags of flour (wheat £7.50 and spelt £11.00). If you are interested please send your request through the general contact form on the website with your name, contact number, order details and preferred Saturday date for collection. Orders should be sent by Thursday evening each week to be ready for collection on Saturday morning.

Can anyone help? Does anyone know of anyone who could provide us with a bucket of oats and barley? In the mill we have bags of grain so people can feel and compare the different types and as you can imagine they have been well handled by little hands and are now mixed up. We can replace the wheat and spelt from our own supply but just need some barley and oats. If anyone does have any or know of anyone who could let us have some we would really appreciate it and can pick up from the York area. Thank you.

Looking for something for the children to do over the summer holdays, then why not get them to take part in “ The Holgate Windmill Challenge Badge” award? Children ( or adults! ) can earn this badge by completing a range of activities at home by themselves or at summer schools etc The activities are designed for children to gain the widest appreciation of our windmill from a variety of perspectives so they must complete activities from the four categories of "Food & Baking", "Design & Technology", "History & Art" and "Get Crafty". Once the children have shown us their proud achievements, the embroidered badges can be purchased for £1.50 either at the mill or posted out. So what are you waiting for? All details and a copy of the Activity Sheet are on our website www.holgatewindmill.org/mini-millers #holgatewindmill #holgate #york #visityork #exploreyork #childrensactivities #minimillers @visityork @exploreyork #heckingtonwindmill #challengebadge #yorkmumbler #schoolholidays #childrensummeractivities ...
