Presentation of: MOULIN DU CHAMP DE LA TRUIE

Mill tower in limestone. It dates back to the second half of the 19th century. It has a chesnut tree wood roof.

On the first floor, there is a pair of recent millstones of 1.2m diameter.
-The tower is completely restored (December 2007)
-The roof flew off in the 1999 storm and was later put back just like the inside mecanism.
-The framework was done in winter 2009/2010 and the roof covered with chestnut tree panelling, put down one by one.

A miller's house was built not far from there with a bread oven !

In Nalliers and Mouzeuil St Marien, there are 18 mills from the 19th century.

You can visit them during events like the "Fête du pain" (bread festival), "Fête des moulins" (mill festival) and "Journée du patrimoine" (Heritage days). Ask for the program
