Skidby Mill

Welcome to Skidby Windmill

Skidby Mill is a working four-sailed tower windmill, the last working mill in East Yorkshire. It is set in an acre of land and has magnificent views over the Wolds. The mill is unusual in still having all its original outbuildings around the courtyard. Some of these buildings have been converted to form the Museum of East Riding Rural Life.
