    schematic drawing at windmill nr 3

    Because the village Aarlanderveen was entirely surrounded by water, after digging to deep for turf, the authorities decided to begin milling the polders dry. The water was to dangerous. And because of the lack of money coming from the water the people were leaving the area.
    They first built 3 windmills and when it turned out the deepest point couldnĀ“t be milled a fourth was added.
    All windmills bring the water up around 1 meter, in total they move water to the river 4,75 meters higher than the deepest point.

    NH church, Aarlanderveen

    The NH church is looking very peculiar with the strange tower. We always tought it was very old, because we had never seen such a tower in the neighbourhood. But this church was built in 1905.
