windmills Holgate windmill plans 3 stage restoration

Holgate Windmill Preservation Society is now planning a three stage restoration of the mill.
  1. reinstate water and electricity, repoint and tar the walls, and reroof the cap. Much of the £90K stage 1 funding is in place. (April 2006).
  2. get the machinery restored and electrically driven.
  3. restore the sails.
The total cost will be around £600K. Unfortunately the Heritage Lottery fund cannot assist, to the extent originally foreseen, and would require a resource centre for school groups close by, which is not easy in the mill's urban situation. However the society shall persevere! All donations will be gratefully received.

The mill is open for Mills Weekend.
