DK2011 Mills, you will see during the Symposium
Mariendalsmøllen: In 1757-60 a windmill was built at the outskirts of Aalborg as
supplement for 3 watermills in the city. In 1893 it was replaced by a bigger and
more modern Dutch windmill. The mill contains millwork, gears etc., but
unfortunately it is only used as a landmark.

Øster Sundby windmill: Moved from Ravnstrup to the present place in 1910,
after the old mill burned down. Dutch mill with original springsails. In daily use until

Vodskov windmill was first built in 1882. It burned down in 1910, and was
replaced by the present mill, which was moved from Flamsted. Despite the mill’s
small size it has a lot of machinery (the owner was a millwright).

Dorf water- and windmill: The watermill is first mentioned in the 17th century. In
1877 the windmill was build as supplement in times of drought or frost. About 1920
the waterwheel was replaced by a Francis turbine, and the watermill was turned
into a power plant that supplied the farm with electricity.

Godthåb hammer mill: Originally a paper mill, which in 1858 was rebuilt as a
hammer mill. In 1868 the Poncelet waterwheel was replaced by a Francis turbine.
The waterwheel is exhibited outside the mill. Inside is a rich maschinery, which is
still working now and then.

Hjerritsdal watermill: First mentioned in the 15th century. In its present shape it is
from 1832. It has an interior overshot waterwheel and under drive (the spurwheel
beneath the stones), which is typical for North Jutland. It is situated in a marvellous

Havnø windmill: Small Dutch mill built in 1842 with the original machinery for
grinding rye and pearled barley. In the 19th century it produced pearled barley for
export to Norway.

The exhibition: Danish Millwrighting through the ages at Nordjyllands Historiske
Museum, Hadsund. An exhibition arranged by curator Lise Andersen.

Møllebygger John Jensen Aps, millwright workshop. The workshop was founded
1882. From 1978 till his death in 2008, the owner was the well known Danish
millwright John Jensen. His son Michael Jensen continues his father’s work.
Tadre watermill: First mentioned in 1405. In its present shape it is built about
1840. It has an overshot waterwheel and over drive (spurwheel over the stones),
which is typical for Seeland.

Ringsted windmill: Excellent Dutch windmill from 1872, with a very rich
machinery. It was in daily use until 1965. Fully restored in 1886. Today they
produce organic flour.

Lille Mølle: Watermill with two overshot wheels. The mill was once owned by the
molinologist Anders Jespersen, who made a lot of molinological experiments with
his Lille Mølle (the name means Little Mill).

Ulbølle windmill is built 1863 as a brick laid windmill with reefing stage. One of
only 3 Danish mills with iron sails stocks. Remark the yellow color of the sails
stocks, which is typical for southern Fyn. . In daily use until 1970.

Rødkilde watermill once was a hair powder mill, built in 1754. Later rebuild for
grinding cereals. It has the biggest overshot wheel in Denmark (5,65 m). In 1994 it
was restored by millwright John Jensen. The restoration was given the Europa
Nostra award for well executed restoration and handicraft.

Grubbe Mill (water- and windmill). The watermill is first mentioned in 1599 but has
been rebuilt many times. The windmill was moved from Nykøbing on Seeland in
1892. The windmill was seriously damaged in a gale in 1999, but is fully restored.

Kaleko watermillis the oldest preserved watermill in Denmark. It is probably from
the time of king Valdemar Atterdags (1340-1375). Originally it had undershot
wheels, but in the 17th century it got 2 overshot wheels. The mill was opened as
museum in 1917.

Ventepose watermill is one of Denmark’s three oldest watermills, built in the 17th
century. It was in use until 1934. Built on the shore of the island Tåsinge. The
farmers came by boat with their corn.

BM20 NOW Available !!!

BM20 - Ganzel and Wulff - The Quest for American
Milling Secrets
All TIMS members should have received BM20 or will receive it in the coming days.
From the Introduction: "In 1832 a publication was issued in Berlin called “Beiträge
zur Kenntnis des amerikanischen Mühlenwesens und der Mehlfabrikation ”, or
“Contribution to the Understanding of American Mills and Flour Production ”,
written by Carl Friedrich Ganzel and Friedrich Wulff. This document describes their
journey around the United States, the mills they visited and how they were used to
produce export quality flour."

In about 250 pages the reader will find a translation of the 1832 report by Ganzel
and Wulff on the mill technology in the USA of the early 19th century, illustrated
with numerous pictures and drawings, as well as comments to this report and a
description of the adaption of the USA mill technology in Germany.

How to get it?

The book is available in our bookshops.

Some first reactions from our members:

. . . The care which has been taken to compile this book, both out of the original
text (and inclusion of all the original drawings) and also from many other works, is

. . . Congratulations, this must be the best BM to date! It will give me some good
reading over Christmas, I am sure all our members will be delighted to receive it.

. . . In full appreciation of the merits of the preceding volumes in the BM series, I
simply must say that I find BM20 the most fascinating volume to date, for a variety
of reasons: Highly interesting subject, sort of interdisciplinary, augmented by the
skills of many aficionados of mills and milling and by a most insightful foreword,
issue put into historical perspective - what can I say.

. . . What a good surprise, I got the TIMS Publications today! Many thanks to the
authors Derek and Gerald and also Tony for the great work.
. . . This BM20 is a thoroughly worthy addition to the series, in fact it is a trailblazer
for the future. Scholarly, technically sound, easy on the eye while being demanding
in content.

. . . I can't thank the TIMS staff enough for the fantastic book! I have read it about
three times now and every time I learn something new.
