Gears Inside the Windmill

Last time we visited Holland we took a tour of the UNESCO site at Kinderjik. The Windmills of Kinderdijk are along the Rhine River in Holland south of Amsterdam. They are used to manage water and eliminate flooding and have been in existence since the 15th Century.

This is a view of the inside of one of the mills that is not currently operating and functions currently as a museum. These are the huge gears that are used to keep the mill turning.
