windmills Curb replaced at Holgate Windmill

A new curb ring was craned on to Holgate windmill on Wednesday August 8th. The work of producing the curb ring was done by millwrights R Thompson and Sons of Alford in Lincolnshire, and especially by employee Tom Davis who is carrying on the family tradition, since his father Jim Davis did work on the mill back about 1933.

The nearby Network Rail's Holgate Road site has proved a useful location to build the curb, and will also be used for construction of the replacement cap due to be done later this year.
