I am looking for information and photographs for the Windmill Inn which is in Blossom Street right next to Micklegate Bar.
Can anybody help please ?

THank you . I am really interested in the history and dating of the Pub .
I know that it traditionally features in the famous Micklegate Run but have drawn a blank on further information. I do not live near York. Is their a source for on line trade directories ?

By the look of the place on the website looks like another pub which has all the atmosphere gutted from it in the interests of modernity!
