windmills Holgate's cap craned off for restoration

Paul Hepworth of Holgate Windmill Preservation Society informs me:
Holgate Windmill's cap was craned off last month and awaits restoration. Funds required are approx £50,000 with craning back on planned for Spring 2007. The tower has a temporary roof. More pictures of the event on our website.

Brickwork repairs are in hand, and an electrical supply has been installed. Separate funding has been secured for internal repairs to floor beams, enabling temporary internal supports to be removed.

Machinery repair and new sails still awaiting further fundraising.
