Event details

Holgate Windmill

Meet York millers past and present at Holgate Windmill and learn about their lives and work since 1770 in a new exhibition. Discover which miller built the mill, who made it taller and who died from breathing in the flour dust. Also see the current millers in action producing stone-ground flour in the traditional way.
