This month we are in Poland visiting windmills and researching material for a new book on windmills in central and eastern Europe. Here’s just one example of the super mills still to be found in this part of the world.
This mill originates from 1705, updated in 1879, and continued to work commercially until the 1930s.
This mill is ripe for restoration. Sadly it might otherwise fall down very soon!
