Windmills reached Flanders by the 12th century, but most date from the 18th. It describes the style and location of the mills, then considers their names and the poetry associated with them.
It then looks in more detail at corn mills and the role of millers. It considers water mills, and ends by looking at the decline in milling.The book is richly illustrated with black-and-white engravings by the author.
