Show sight on map

The Lisserpoelmolen is a polder mill from 1676 in the Dutch municipality of Lisse. The mill was built for the drainage of the Lisserpoelpolder. In the mill there is a steel auger, which was very exceptional at the time of construction: most polder mills were still equipped with a paddle wheel. The Lisserpoelmolen is grinding, but only grinds on a voluntary basis. The mill was originally owned by the Lisserpoelpolder water board, succeeded by the De Oude Veenen water board. Since 1986, the Lisserpoelmolen has been owned by the Rijnlandse Molenstichting. The mill is inhabited and cannot be visited.
