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.

We need your help. We are living in really unusual times and we know that many of you have bought flour or used the windmill as a place to walk to for your daily exercise whilst in lockdown. Our archivist is collecting views of volunteers during this period and we would love to know our customers and visitors thoughts/experiences. Have you bought flour from us and how did you use it? Are you a new customer? Did you walk to the windmill as a focus for your walk? Any thoughts/ views would be great, either post them on social media or email to media@holgatewindmill.org. We really look forward to hearing from you and putting together material that can be used to explain to future generations what it has been like during the last few weeks and the role the windmill has played. Thank you. #holgatewindmill #holgatewindmillpreservationsociety #lockdown #lockdown2020 #dailyexercise #york #acomb #holgate #archive #archives ... See MoreSee Less

In our windmill shop, which is open tomorrow between 10 and 12, we sell wholemeal wheat and spelt flour. Spelt can be used for bread but also makes a great shortbread. #wholemeal #wholemealbread #wholemealflour #spelt #homebaking #bakingbread #homemadebread #shortbread #speltflour #speltshortbread ...
