Heusden: Mill III

It’s been a while since my last post from The Netherlands, so let’s go back to September last year, when I visited the charming town of Heusden on a sunny afternoon.

Heusden is located on the river Bergsche Maas, which at that point forms the border between the provinces of Gelderland and Noord-Brabant, Heusden being located in the latter. It is a fortified town of about 1,500 inhabitants, which has been renovated over the better part of the last fifty years. The fortifications were built during the Eighty Years’ War (Dutch War of Independence, 1568-1648) on the orders of William of Orange. There are three windmills built on the fortified walls around the city. All three of them are post mills and they are simply called Molen (Mill) I, II and III. This is Mill III, I will show the other two later.
