De Gekroonde Poelenburg

This wood sawmill from 1869 is of the Paltrok type: in it is a large workshop which turns with the mill as the sails turn to catch the wind. This mill owes its name to its broad moveable base which is reminiscent of the Pfalzrock, a woman's dress from the Palatinates who took refuge in the Netherlands in earlier days.
