Nieuwlandse Windmill

Mill

The Nieuwlandse Molen, build between 1580 and 1584 was equipped with a paddle wheel until 1947 when a screw pump with an electric motor was installed so that the mill could be run by wind or electric energy. A mortar was added in 1962 which again increased production. The wind rights were redeemed in 1988 and the Nieuwlandse Mill was raised by 5.6 metres in connection with the greenhouses which can be found nearby. The Nieuwlandse Windmill can be visited during the National Mills Day, the Westland Windmill Day and Heritage Day.
