The Soete Windmill
The windmill was run by the family Soete for several generations and its history is marked by numerous events.
It was for instance one of the last post mills of the province of Hainaut, was completely made of wood and consisted of three storeys.
The windmill was listed in 1978.
An identical copy of our famous windmill, burnt down in May 1997, was built on the place of the original mill.
It can be visited during each 1st weekend of the month of May until late September: you can watch it grind cereals, crush oats and dress the grind to produce white flour.
