The previous parts of this series are here, here and here.

In this part the promised mill, called Sint-Antoniusmolen. It is actually still operative, but not on the moment we were there.

Are those wood support poles something that was added to stabilize the building, or were they there from the beginning?

They are not there for support. The roof can rotate so the wicks can catch the wind. The poles are there for keeping the roof from turning when that is not needed.

It is gorgeous!!  I would have loved something like this verses the modern ones going up around where I grew up.

I know the feeling. I just hate those modern "windmills". They are no more than a disturbance of the landscape.
