Long Description:
[FR] Il fut la propriété de plusieurs meuniers. Il tient son nom d'Edouard Loquet, un cultivateur, qui l'acquit en 1912. Alfred Willer, un nom dans la meunerie des Flandres, l'a occupé.

En 1933, le moulin est arrêté par manque d'entretien. Après la guerre, un architecte l'achète et le transforme en résidence secondaire. En 1980, Bernard Vanderbruggen, propriétaire à son tour, en fait sa résidence principale.
