Kinderdijk

Kinderdijk
Netherlands, Kinderdijk, August 2009

One of the many drainage mills called "De Overwaardse Molens" in Kinderdijk dating from 1740. Kinderdijk is a village in the Netherlands about 15 km east of Rotterdam, situated in a polder in the Alblasserwaard at the confluence of the Lek and Noord rivers. To drain the polder, a system of 19 windmills was built around 1740. This group of mills is the largest concentration of old windmills in the Netherlands. The windmills of Kinderdijk are one of the best-known Dutch tourist sites. They have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinderdijk

Wonderful photo! I love these old windmills!

But I had to look up its function. I wasn't aware that they were used for pumping up water (the term 'drainage mill' was unfamiliar to me). Interesting!
