Milling with the wind!

Lovely post and thank you for sharing have a blessed day Liz

I posted a while ago about a windmill near our house and another blogger asked for more info on it.

That lead to a second post and a video of the saw mill.

I guess post number three makes this a series.

In The Netherlands, famous for her mills, the wind has been harnessed over the centuries for many different purposes.

The wood mill was one example.

Today we visited another.

This one put me in mind of a UK children’s program. As a character on Camberwick green
He was always to be found dodging between the turning sails and adjusting to the wind.

His mill was a classic for producing flour.

Today’s mill sits in the university town of Leiden and by chance the sails were turning today.

We’d never even noticed it before but were at a market in a less familiar part of the town.
