Scope & contentSummary Translation

A guide to the tower Dutch mill with board sails and fantail, built in 1887. It starts with a detailed description of the mill mechanism, including many measurements, and the milling process.

The second half of the booklet tells the history of the mill, including technical developments and changes of miller, and radical changes in its construction, and power source from wind to diesel. The mill was restored by an association, and brought back into operation, mainly using a motor. Tools of other crafts have been brought in and are exhibited in the mill.

The book is illustrated with black-and-white photos, a map showing its location and a cross-section. It also lists the technical data.
