1. De Hoge Molen

Show sight on map

De Hoge Molen is a polder mill on the Boezemkade in Nieuw-Lekkerland in the Netherlands. It was built in 1740 and belongs to the Kinderdijk windmills. The Hoge mill functioned as an upper mill and ground the water from the low bosom to the high bosom. One of the two mills that ground the water from the polder into the low bosom, the Small or Low Mill, still exists. When in 1966 the paddle wheel of the Hoge Molen was replaced by an auger and the mill could raise the water directly from the polder level, the Lage Molen lost its function. Since 1997, the polder discharges the excess water via a auger pumping station directly to the Lage Boezem of the Overwaard.
