Long Description:
The Tweemanspolder Molen No.1 is a ground sailer near Zevenhuizen. The mill was built in 1730 and is the substructure of the Tweemanspolder windmill. The mill was equipped with a paddle wheel until 1950. Due to a change in the polder level, the paddle wheel has been replaced by a centrifugal pump, which, however, was not satisfactory. In 1953 the four-aisle was decommissioned and the windmills were acquired by the Molenviergang Tweemanspolder Foundation. A major restoration was carried out in 2009/2010, reversing the 1950 change and deepening the paddle wheel. As a result, the mill turnaround comes back into balance.
