‘Tissenhovemolen’ at Mater (Belgium)

A first windmill on this spot was built in 1218.
In 1768 the mill was rebuilt and can still be admired today.

Extensive restoration works took place in 1975 & 2006 and the mill is still able to grind grain.

My shot shows the windmill during a thunderstorm in the evening after a very hot day.

Location : Mater (Belgium)

***

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