The Wambekemolen

Short story about the Wambekemolen, built for 1825. This was a strike mill in the hamlet of Wambeke, near the same name stream, along the stone road to Waasten, at 2.9km east of Wijtschate's church. On December 15, 1909 Braem Philippe Jules, Mills of Wijtschate, made a distance from the mill. Just before the war, Braem Jules was only the owner when he was destroyed in October 1914.

On the picture you can see the mill in full action, the horse pulls the car of the slope, the miller looks calmly in his doorway. The mouldersknecht stands at the foot, the drive belt turns around the pulley.
