Windmill 'Op Hoop van Beter' - Ingen

N 51.959885 / E 5.484143

The present windmill replaced a ground flour mill, which did not catch enough wind due to its low construction. The then new mill was therefore built considerably higher. The wind-powered mill was not in operation for a long time. In 1922, the rods were lowered, the roof and the scaffolding were removed and motorised milling was continued. This is how the bare shell stood until 1983. Following a local initiative, the mill was made fully operational again and put back into service in 1985 to grind bread grain.

Currently, the miller produces 800 kg of flour per week for human consumption. The flour goes to bakers in Rhenen and Tiel. In addition, the miller organises children's parties, where they bake their own pancakes from the flour of the mill in a restaurant and then eat them.
