On the way we also pass the following sights: Mill Agneta Agneta is a hull, oil and corn mill built in 1851. In 1914 the mill was converted into a saw and grain mill. The mill has one saw frame and one pair of grinding stones consisting of artificial stones with a diameter of 140 cm. Nowadays, however, sawing is mainly done electrically. Ruurlo Castle is a castle and estate. Ruurlo Castle is mentioned as early as 1326 and has been in the hands of the Dutch noble Van Heeckeren family since the 15th century. Because the castle was permanently built in all previous centuries, the building consists of a mixture of architectural styles. Medieval masonry still exists, especially in the basement. Almost the entire left side of the house dates back to the 16th century, with the large square tower taking its current form in 1572. The "loose" tower at the back was added at the beginning of the 17th century, and the wall on this side was given new gables in the 19th century. Important parts of the interior originate from Huis De Voorst, built by Arnold Joost van Keppel, and moved to Ruurlo in the 19th century. Just before the restoration of the early eighties, the castle was the location for the television series 'De Zevensprong' after the book by Tonke Dragt. The tourist office in Ruurlo has organized a bicycle tour through the village with "de Zevensprong" as the theme. The "Jonker Joostpad" is another walking / cycling tour around the castle, in which Joost van Heeckeren, junker and lord of the castle from the 16th century, talks about the local heritage. Today the castle is a popular wedding venue. In 2003, the orangery from 1879 was rebuilt next to the castle, which serves as a tea house and is rented out for special occasions. And lastly Molen Ons Belang. This mill is capable of turning, but is used for other purposes. A theater is currently located in the mill on the ground floor.
