Putmolen ~ Episode 6 “Hit by the Mill”


‘Klap Van De Molen’ (Hit by the Mill) is a dutch saying like ‘have a screw loose’.
Actually, no kidding, such accidents happen easily – it happened once in my ancestor’s family on a mill near The Hague : the miller’s wife was lifted in the air by one of the sails…while hanging the laundry to dry – I was told years ago by my father.
Take the right door , Rita – the assistant miller and wife of miller Johan Slingerland – is explaining to the visiting children – the entrance on the opposite side of the rotating sails. The miller’s family is living here in the Putmolen water mill in the Aarlanderveen polder around Alphen in Holland.
Filmed using an Ambeo (Sennheiser – Apogee) headset for binaural sound and the iPhone X on the dutch national mill day 2018.

Putmolen ~ Episode 3 “Smock”


Putmolen water windmill in the Aarlanderveen polder around Alphen, Holland.
This smock type windmill has a sloping tower with eight sides, topped with a cap that rotates to bring the sails into the wind. This type of windmill got its name from its resemblance to smocks worn by farmers in an earlier period.
Filmed using an Ambeo (Sennheiser – Apogee) headset for binaural sound and the iPhone X on the dutch national mill day 2018.
