1. 't Poeltje

Show sight on map

The mill 't Poeltje in Warmond is a small polder mill built in 1787 that served until 1924. The mill had a mortar that had to raise the water up to two meters. In 1957 the mill was dismantled and put into use as a summer cottage. The mill then fell into disrepair, until there was not much left but a ruin. Only after 't Poeltje was designated as a national monument could the Rijnlandse Molenstichting, which had the mill since 1979 been on leasehold, only do something to preserve this small, but graceful mill. In 2005 the mill was rebuilt and made rotatable. The restoration was completed on 10 June 2006. During the restoration, a king spindle was installed so that the mill can possibly be given a function again in the future. From Oegstgeest, new construction has advanced to near 't Poeltje and the relatively too high houses right next to the mill have seriously affected the mill biotope and its landscape value.

2. De Herder

De Herder is a sawmill in the Dutch city of Leiden. The mill dates from 1884 and was built for the sawmill there. He replaced an earlier paltrokmolen, which had been struck by lightning. The mill was not new: it has previously stood as "De Kat" in Amsterdam as a sawmill. The Herder sawed on wind power until 1926; after that, decay has set in. During the Second World War, wind power was cut again from 1941 onwards, but using the now built-in fast sawing machine that was driven by the wind with the help of transmission belts, instead of with the electric motor that was installed in 1926. The original vertical saw windows have been removed.
