Flour mill, peel mill and oil mill

Molen De Hoop in Oldebroek is the only mill in the Netherlands with the function of Flour mill, peel mill and oil mill. Built in 1853 by Kornelis Blaauw. The oilworks were decommissioned around 1900 and the mill was no longer in use from the 1950s onwards. The arrival of diesel and electric engines meant that there was no longer any dependence on the wind.
