Preserving the Holgate Windmill


The windmill was renovated by the Holgate Windmill Preservation Society

between 2001 and 2012 at a cost of 550,000 GB pounds (US$ 876,000), and

began operating in February 2013 for the first time since 1933. The

society hope to mill 6-8 tonnes of wheat this year for sale in their

shop and local outlets.
