Description

A recreation area of over 900 hectares has been created around the Rottemeren, a system of widening of the River Rotte. The Rottemeren arose after the surrounding polders were drained and the river and its foothills are located a lot higher than the polders due to peat bogs and subsidence. The Eendrachtspolder has been constructed on a site that has traditionally always been farmland. A part has been constructed to prevent flooding, but also for recreation and (top) sports. After only 3 km from the parking lot at TOP Rottemeren you pass windmill Tweemanspolder no. 3, an octagonal ground sailer, but it was built in 1792. Its predecessor burned down in 1792 and in the same year the construction of the new mill was completed. In 2009 the Tweemanspolder No. 3 was completely restored and made ready to grind. Close by you can also see Tweemanspolder no. 4. This beautiful octagonal ground sailer was built in 1722 and is therefore seventy years younger than number 3. This mill was also fully restored in 2009 and the mill is once again ready to grind. He drains the Tweemanspolder together with three other mills. You cycle over 22 kilometers to the Eendrachtsmolen. This ground sailor dates from 1727. The polder mill was the upper mill of a mill corridor, but it no longer exists. In 2014 the mill is still used to drain the Eendrachtspolder; he changes the water for the Rotten.
