Borgelink mill - Denekamp
In 1816, farmer Lambert Brandehof, together with three partners, received permission from king Willem I to build a windmill in Denekamp. This Brandehof mill, a corn and oil mill, burned down in 1846. Shortly afterwards it was restored as a corn mill and a hulling mill.
In 1853 the mill became the property of the mayor of Denekamp. In 1855 the brothers Gerrit and Herman Borgelink came to own the mill. In 1870 Herman Borgelink became mill owner and changed the name of the mill. In 1904, a petrol engine was installed in the mill. In 1928, the sails, cap and scaffolding were removed and the remaining octagonal section continued to be used for Borgelink's cattle feed company.
In 1992, the mill came into the possession of the Molen-Stichting Lattrop-Tilligte (Lattrop-Tilligte Mill Foundation) to restore it as a mill suitable for grinding. The actual restoration took until 2002.
