The Helper

Polder mill De Helper (The Helper) is located on the east shores of Lake Paterswolde and -until the 1960s- helped to regulate the water level in the nearby Helpman polder. It is not the original location where the mill was built however; when the construction of highway A28 started in 1969 it had to move, so it was demolished and rebuilt here.

The mill is in operation on a voluntary base every now and then.
PS. The Helper mill is also on my header photo, these photos were taken on the same day.
