  • First windmill I've ever been too. So interesting to see how it works + used to work. It's so cute! Flour is still ground there every once in a while and unfortunately working a windmill is becoming somewhat of a lost art. The volunteers there were so knowledgable and passionate in saving this piece of history. I hope places like these stay preserved.
  • Open most Saturday's for flour sales 10-12. Check their website for open days. Fascinating place.
  • Visit on bank holiday weekend, fantastic mini museum in a working windmill that has been lovingly restored. Buy flour milled on site.
  • These guys have done great work to make this windmill a go to place in York. The minster is impressive but this has been restored by volunteers with love. They staff the place on open days and their knowledge is second to none. Well worth a visit.
  • Brilliant place...deceptively interesting...took 2 hours to look round
