‘Heimolen’ at Keerbergen (Belgium)

This windmill was originally first built in 1706.

During its history, the mill was 4 times struck and destroyed by a lightning strike, but always rebuilt (last time in 1955).

The mill is called ‘Heimolen’ and is still able to grind grain.

Location : Keerbergen (Belgium)

***
The Netherlands is generally known as the land par excellence of windmills, but we have in Belgium also some fine specimens.
