A fair bit of the wooden components, however come from other defunct windmills, so it is possible that some of them go back in age. In the meantime, there is certainly quite a bit of urban development, but the mill manages to pick up some wind. The Leonardus mill can be visited on Saturdays from 13.00 to 16.00. It is possible to get married at the Leonardus mill for a price of 125 euros, the amount which goes to the municipality of Maasgouw and designated for the Leonardusmolen.
This is the same mechanism that I had shown from another mill some time ago. In summary, the horizontal wheel in the foreground transmits rotation (through deliberate slip) to the vertical wheel, which then transmits rotation to the vertical wheel in the background, through a shaft not visible here, thereby enabling heavy loads/equipment to lifted through a hatch in the floor. All wind power!
