Sint Anthoniusmolen, Kessel - Anno 1800

There have been several restorations and key components replaced over the decades. Flour for bakeries, buckwheat and cattle feed are the main output from this mill today. In addition to the heavy milling stones, the wind power also drives a rope to haul and lower grain bags. Additionally, a rotating, barrel shaped sieve is used to filter the ground flour.

I like the scratchiness of this... If I may make a slightly critical observation... more contrast would help...
Ayush Basu: All comments are welcome always, Larry, and yes, I think you are right.
Amazing to see the etching...
Ayush Basu: Thanks to the miller for pointing it out as it was not outright obvious, Elizabeth.
Voilà  une trace qui a bien résisté au temps.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: Merci, Pascale. You are absolutely right about it.

Looks like historic carving
Ayush Basu: It does look faint, Chris. Perhaps we will not know.

I have read how the old watermills in England changed the product they were milling many times over the years
Ayush Basu: And I imagine it kept them relevant and therefore they survive even now, Lisl?
Yup, there it is in B&W! Well done, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind remark, Ginnie.

Beautifully carved lettering Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thanks to the miller for pointing it out as it was not outright obvious, Chad.

That is just amazing and in a way mindblowing to know the year of building....
Ayush Basu: And to think that the oak trunk is perhaps much older than even that, Astrid.
i can hear the person who carved that... they whisper... 'carpe dium'!!
neat shot, Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you!
It was certainly no vandal, Elaine! grin
It was very neatly carved wasn't it, this mill has so much history.
Ayush Basu: The future is a bit shaky for this mill but it is conserved at least, so there is hope, Brian.

Another very creative shot of the mill.
Ayush Basu: Thanks to the miller for bringing it up as it was not outright obvious, Louis.
A fine detail captured Ayush
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you like it, Bill.
