The runner stones of Holgate's three pairs of french burrs have just been lifted, to assess their potential for reuse. One pair will be wind driven, and a second pair by electricity. The third will be permanently lifted for display purposes. The fourth pair, which are Derbyshire Peak stone used to mill animal feed, will be left unseparated.

A number of short video clips showing various aspects of the work at Holgate windmill can be found at YouTube.
