Sint Anthoniusmolen, Kessel - Windspeed

This mill is nowadays open only on Saturdays from 13:30 to 17:00. Volunteer millers are only glad to give a tour and explanation on the working mechanisms of the mill. As I understood, looking out of the circular peephole, one should be able to see a vane sailing past every second (or 15RPM), to be assured of sufficient power to grind. While it may not sound like a high speed, it still is considerable wind power, and can be an obstacle with the built up vicinity. For the long term, there are plans to move the mill to a more open location.

Joli point de vue. Les explications sont intéressantes.
Fabulous shot through the peephole, Ayush. I love it. But it blows my mind to think of moving a windmill like this to another location!

I love the view, Ayush smile
That will be quite the operation to move this "landmark".
I imagine it will cost a lot of money to move it Ayush

I had a tour of a windmill in Dutchland and found it most interesting and enjoyable.
very cool shot!! and thanks for the story about the perspective... i've always loved windmills!!
This is a fine shot Ayush. It will be a major, and expensive, task to move the mill I would think.
Shot from a different perspective, Ayush. Really liked your informative narrative.
