Westerveld Mill - Tilligte

N 52.414766 / E 6.959803

The mill was built in 1865 and commissioned by miller Brunninkhuis. He was also a baker, a combination that was more common in the eastern Netherlands. In 1911, a petroleum engine came into use for windless periods. When a rod breaks in 1929, the switch is made to full engine grinding. In the Second World War, the wooden octagon is cut to halfway point and the remaining mill body now serves as storage space for the Brunninkhuis cattle feed company. In 1982 initiatives were taken by the Oortman Mill Foundation to restore the mill grind again. After the foundation acquired the windmill hull, the name of the foundation was changed to Windmill Foundation Lattrop-Tilligte. After the restoration, in the course of 1984, the mill was officially put back into use on December 8, 1984.
