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.

Putmolen ~ Episode 5 “Hill Mill”


The octagonal smock polder mill Putmolen is towering above the polder land on a kind of artificial hill in the Aarlanderveen polder around Alphen in Holland. Some therefore speak of a ‘hill mill’, in dutch : ‘beltmolen’ – with the old dutch word ‘belt’ for ‘berg’ (mountain).
