A 200-YEAR-old windmill between the villages of Appleton Roebuck and Bolton Percy has gone on sale.

The disused structure, which is a familiar landmark for train passengers on the East Coast mainline between York and Doncaster, was once a working mill before its sails were removed in the 1930s.

The windmill could now become a home after the current owners - brothers Henry and John Houseman - secured planning permission for the site.

Jane Houseman said: “We’re thrilled to have finally achieved that goal and are really looking forward to seeing what sort of exciting restoration project will transform this amazing, but for many years rather forlorn, old building.

“The Housemans have farmed in Bolton Percy for hundreds of years and although as a family we would have loved this to be our own redevelopment project, unfortunately we just have too many other commitments.”

The building has a view of York Minster from the top floor.

The structure is on the market with a guide price of £200,000. The closing date for offers is 12pm on June 21.

Offers can be made by emailing toby@croftresidential.co.uk.
