mill

Dutch: Standerd molen.
English: post mill? Not sure about the translation.
Hubby and I and hubby's sister took a trip to Groningen, our neighbour province. We had a lovely day, saw a lot of interesting things, for instance this beautiful corn mill. There was a sign that told us that this mill was originally built in 1619 in Bourtange and replaced and rebuilt in Ter Haar. The last renovation took place in 1986.

I believe it is what we call a wind mill. How charming! Something I have only seen in pictures and always makes me think of Holland. A wonderful cview of this one bep

Mooie opname van deze (Meer eenvoudige) molen.
Ik heb van de dokter stevige pijnkillers gekregen. Dat helpt wel iets. Het heeft zijn tijd nodig.

Such a classic structure and so many stories could be told if its walls could speak!

I would say wind mill, unless they do store corn inside the silo looking part of it.

It's wonderful that so many of these beautiful old mills have been preserved and even better that some are still in use. Lovely shot :)
