Mills in Holland

Something nice and calm to look at . (No urbanisity whatsoever, dissapointment to all of those who are skyscraper crazy )

This is all part of Unesco World Herritage, originally these mills were used to pump water out of the fields to prevent flooding and damage to the crops. Simple.


























More to come...

Most of the mills these days are converted into houses, and people live in them, but one was made into a museum and here it is.






Here is one of the rooms, and overall this sort of mill would make a fairly good size home, I was quite surprized with the space inside. Ofcourse you cant see that in photos.


A very poor attempt, I was trying to take a picture of a photo hanging on a wall.


More of the inside.


Another photo I was trying to capture.


Up high from the mill's windows.






Different types of mills found...




Back outside.




The turbine.














Last bit to come....
