Last winter was particularly harsh and it has affected the paintwork on the mill so we have decided to have it repainted. The paint used is a mineral silicate black paint by Keim (from Germany) which is often used on lighthouses and is used on many of the historic buildings in York but it is expensive. It is important to preserve buildings like these and any donations towards this project would be very gratefully received. #holgatewindmill #holgatewindmillpreservationsociety #preservingoldbuildings #KEIM #keimpaint #preservation #york #donations ...
