Schans bij het Pannenhuis
4911 BS Oosterhout
From 1672 onwards the English, French and Germans fought against the Republic. Republican soldiers withdrew behind the Schans at the Pannenhuis. Enemy soldiers stayed in the inns and with residents of Oosterhout. This is also the case in the Pannenhuis. Owner Cornelis Bus declared the billeted soldiers 62 guilders and 8 stuivers. In the area the English caused a lot of damage to forests, fields, crops, houses and barns. The village council decided: after six o'clock no more beer for the English.
Take a look at Molen de Hoop on the edge of Den Hout. The mill runs regularly and that is worth seeing for yourself. However, the mill has not been able to grind since 2014.

The mill was built in 1867. In the autumn of 1944 the mill was damaged by combat actions. The mill was restored in 1971. The mill is again regularly used on wind power by the volunteer miller.

In Hooge Zwaluwe you will find the Zeldenrust windmill. This mill was built in 1866 to grind grain. The mill was also used for this purpose until 1946. Later, the mill was restored on a large scale to remain operational.

The Zwartenbergse Molen is the only mill in North Brabant that still has a real grinding function. Yet windmills were not only used to produce grain from cereals, but also to reclaim polder areas. The mill can move a maximum of 80 cubic meters of water per minute.
