Borgelink mill - Denekamp
In 1816, farmer Lambert Brandehof, together with three partners, received permission from King William I to build a windmill in Denekamp. This Brandehof windmill, a corn and oil mill, burned down in 1846. Shortly afterwards it was restored as a corn mill and husk mill. In 1853 the mill became the property of the mayor of Denekamp. In 1855 the brothers Gerrit and Herman Borgelink came to the mill as tenants. In 1870 Herman Borgelink became the owner of the mill, and the name of the mill changed. In 1904 a petrol engine was installed in the mill, in 1928 the mill was stripped of sails, cap and scaffolding and the remaining eight-sided were used for the cattle feed business of Borgelink. In 1992 the mill came into the possession of the Molen-Stichting Lattrop-Tilligte to restore it as a grinding mill. The actual recovery lasted until 2002.
