Nederland - Nunspeet, De Duif

Nederland - Nunspeet, De Duif
Windmill De Duif (The Pigeon) was built in 1886 on the spot where a previous mill was burned down after a lightning strike. The mill - formerly called the Veelhorster molen was owned in the 17th century by the influential Feyth family from Elburg and was used for grinding grain from the beginning. It is an octagonal 'belt mill' (belt = a man made hill); the hill has a height of over 4 metres.

The mill has been restored in 1963 and 1982. After this restoration, grain is milled again on a voluntary basis.

Such a beautiful old mill.............and how lovely to hear it's been restored to it's proper use. It looks splendid against the sky!

Some of the old mills in England, that were only milling occasionally (just for visitors to see) have been put back into full production since a flour shortage at the beginning of the pandemic.

I saw already several windmills, but I think never with a huge and so low thatched roof. Looks great.

Good that they keep these Mills working to think one day wind turbines could be used again not only to produce power but mill flour as a by product.
