Long Description:
Les vestiges d’un moulin à farine, en contrebas du haut fourneau, démontrent l’ingéniosité de ses concepteurs, qui ont su réutiliser l’eau de la voie de décharge de la roue du haut fourneau pour actionner une roue de moulin tournant par-dessous.

Remains of a flour mill, located down from the blast furnace, show the ingenuity of its designers, who re-utilized the water from the spillway of the wheel of the blast furnace to activate an undershot millwheel.
Type of mill: Water Mill

What did this millstone make?: Flour

Status of Stone: Public Display
