Nederland - De Molen van Rolde

Nederland - De Molen van Rolde
The Molen van Rolde is a grist and barley mill. The mill was built in 1873 and replaced a ill on this site, which burnt down a year earlier. The mill has no formal name, taking its name from the town of Rolde. The mill passed through a number of owners and came into the ownership of the Schuiling family in 1892.
In 1968 the mill was sold to the municipality of Rolde.

The Molen van Rolde - situated on a little man made hill - is a three-storey smock mill on a single-storey brick base. There is no stage, the sails reaching down almost to ground level. The smock and cap are thatched. The mill is winded by a tailpole and winch. The four sails - with a span of 19.10 metres - are carried in a cast-iron windshaft.

Over the years the windmill has been restored several times. The mill is still working and has a volunteer miller.
The Molen van Rolde is a so called Rijksmonument, a Dutch national heritage site.

What a marvelous barley mill! It's in gorgeous condition. Loved both of your angles. I'm very happy that this lovely mill is cared for and in use too. :)

I was reminded of a photo search I went on a few days ago. I was looking for old pictures of San Francisco and its historical Playland at the Beach. I mentioned once (or more, lol) that SF has its own Dutch "wind" mills, though last I read they've fallen into disrepair (will have to check!). But anyway, I saw the mills in some of the old photography and immediately thought of you! Take a peek: i.pinimg.com/originals/e2/43/93/e2439333084c5d3887d085a2efbfab42.png
Pretty cool, eh?! :)

So I found out that one of them was recently restored as of 2012! The other hasn't been looked after for a while though. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Gate_Park_windmills
