About Us

Holgate Windmill is a fully restored and working 18th-century corn mill about 1.5 miles (2km) west of York city centre. Visitors can explore four floors and when wind permits see the sails turning and operating the machinery inside the building. Access to all floors is by fixed ladders with handrails. Stoneground wholemeal and spelt flour milled here is available for sale.

Information updated October 2022.

Open days. The mill is open to the public regularly from May to October; also on some bank holidays and a few other dates.

The regular season of open days has now finished, but we are reinstating our popular Santa in the Mill weekends:

Saturdays and Sundays 3-4 December and 10-11 December, 2-4pm each day.

Mill shop. The mill maintains its original purpose by milling grain to produce flour for the local community. The shop on the ground floor remains open every Saturday morning throughout the year from 10am to 12 noon for the sale of flour and other items.

For current information see the mill's website or social media channels.
