windmills Holgate Windmill Preservation Society about to acquire Charitable Status

Holgate windmill is owned by the City of York Council, who have agreed in principle to lease the Mill to the Holgate Windmill Preservation Society for 15 years (the minimum period to unlock Heritage Lottery funding).

The Council are carrying out safety improvements to the mill's interior, as a prelude to the Society's surveyor being allowed in to undertake a feasibility study. The Mill is currently ringed with Heras fencing which unfortunately cuts off viewing of the recently erected story board about the mill.

The feasibility report will be a basis for discussion regarding the extent of restoration and access for visits which is likely to be restricted to pre-booked small groups, due to the proximity of local housing.
