Mill de Hoop Wolphaartsdijk - Wolphaartsdijk
This round stone mill dates from 1808 and is no less than 22 metres high. Although it was originally a ground-sailer, the mill was raised by half a metre after a conflict over wind rights. Thus, it had become a scaffold mill.
The mill survived a fire in 1993, but unfortunately the upper cap could not be spared. A new upper cap was installed and at the same time the body was raised by another 70 centimetres. You can clearly see the different building layers in the appearance of the mill.
