De Warkense Molen

Warkense Molen
7231PK Zutphen
http://www.allemolens.nl

The Warkense Molen was built in 1878. Fairly soon after construction, the mill was assisted by a petroleum engine to be able to grind even when there was no wind. This engine was installed in 1899 in a small engine room inside the mill. In 1922 a larger engine room was built outside the mill. This room is still there between the mill and the bakery museum. Yet for a long time wind power played the leading role in this mill. Later only in wartime milling was done exclusively on wind power. For the rest, milling was mainly done with machine grinding companies. In the 1980s, wind-powered milling was last used for the animal feed company when the machine mill was temporarily broken. The mill has been restored several times over the years. For example, the wooden blades of the mill were replaced by metal blades and the wooden mill shaft was replaced by a cast iron shaft.

Het Velde

Huis het Velde

The first mention of the white country house Het Velde dates back to 1326. The basis of the current country house was created in the sixteenth century during a renovation.

Vestingstad Zutphen

Korte Hofstraat
7201KJ Zutphen

The history of Zutphen goes back to more than 1700 years ago. Zutphen started as a Germanic settlement. In the 9th century, a ring wall and a moat were already built around Zutphen to protect the city against attack by the Vikings. Part of this old ring wall has remained intact. In the Middle Ages the city developed into a successful trading city and at the end of the 12th century Zutphen was granted city rights. The city was then walled in the 13th century and Zutphen was also expanded. 1284 is known as the disaster year of Zutphen. A major fire destroyed most of the city that year. After the construction of the city, things went a lot better for Zutphen. The 14th century was even a kind of Golden Age for Zutphen. The city then became the capital of the County of Zutphen and the city took part in the Baltic Sea trade. Over the centuries, the fortifications of Zutphen have been constantly reinforced. From 1874 the fortifications were demolished because they had become redundant. Yet there are still plenty of old defenses to be found in Zutphen.

Suideras


7233SE Bronckhorst

The present house was taken into use in 1891 and was built opposite the site where the old house once stood on the other side of the canal. The house renovated by the Van Eck's was bad, so bad that it had to be demolished.
