A fully restored functioning (you can buy flour in our shop!) windmill dating from 1770, it is now in the care of the Holgate Windmill Preservation Society. Holgate tower windmill was built in 1770 of brickstones by its first owner and miller George Waud. He, his son and grandson ran the mill until 1851, and a dwelling-house was erected around the same time.[1] The mill was originally fitted with five Roller Reefing sails although these were later replaced by Double Patent sails.[2] In 1841, the mill was described as having three pairs of French Burr millstones, two dressing machines and five Patent sails.[3] A fourth pair of stones had been added by 1858.
