Welcome to Holgate Windmill
MAINTENANCE : Next Wednesday (Feb 28th) the mill will not be open or operating. New electricity cables are due to be laid and connected across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. We trust that the mill can operate again on Friday 1st March.
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.
Ever wondered how a Windmill Works?

LIVE DATA FROM THE MILL!
We now have a live webcam with data at Holgate Windmill.
We are now involved in an exciting new initiative where along with some other windmills we have installed datalogging into the mill all run on a new LoRaWAN network. This technology has been developed at Upminster Windmill and their team installed the system in our mill in late September. After a few weeks bedding in the system is now operating well.
Holgate Windmill is a charity run purely by volunteers. We depend on income we can generate ourselves and donations given to support our work. If you would like to help and support us, a donation would be greatly appreciated. Please click the button below and thank you.
