Holgate Alarms, York: windy

Holgate Alarms

“Holgate Alarms” burglar alarm, York • And finally, a home for Windy Miller. Holgate Windmill is famed for being sited a roundabout in the middle of a York housing estate  – see the BBC story here. However, rather than a cheery flour-miller, a scary Northern matron sprung from the terraced house this alarm adorned and yelled at me for photographing her gaff, so I had to pretend I was photographing the football stadium behind it (as if). • Spotted: Newborough Terrace, York, Yorkshire, YO3, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of York Central
