Corn mill Windlust - Radewijk

N 52.578330519389 / E 6.702277381

One hundred guilders, was the exact amount Jan Antonie van Houselt paid for a piece of land in Radewijk, on which he would later found a mill. From 1862 until his untimely death in 1868, he kept that mill running himself. Thereafter, his widow temporarily employed a miller and rented out the mill several times until in 1877 the mill burned to the ground due to a lightning strike.

With the insurance money paid out by the fire insurance company, the Van Houselt family bought an oil mill from 1771. This octagonal bell mill was rebuilt in Radewijk and put into use as a corn mill in 1877. A new bakery, shop and farm were added at the end of the 19th century.

Since 2020, the small-scale bakery, the Rokemolen, to the village of Radewijk, with the shop under the mill, has been leased to Guus and Margreet who run the business with their passion and love for the craft.
