Noordmolen, Twickel, Ambt Delden, Overijssel, Netherlands - 0601

In the Noord mill (Dutch: Noordmolen) on the Twickel estate near Ambt Delden province Overijssel, oil is made from linseed (flax seed). This is done in three operational stages.

The Noordmolen is already more than 650 years old. In May 1347, Herman van Twicklo bought "Huize Eijsink" and the North Mills located on the Azelose brook from the gentleman farmer Berend van Hulscher. The deed of sale has been preserved in the archive of castle Twickel. This refers to the Noordmolens.
In the past there was also a flour mill opposite the current oil mill.
This was demolished in 1831.

The mill has been restored several times, as can still be seen through memorial stones in the quay walls. The mill was restored in 1917, but stagnation in part due to lack of water again led to decline. In the years 1976-1978 the mill building was restored again for the Twickel Foundation. In 1984 the mill received a new water wheel, which was donated by the Rotary club Delden-Borne. The restoration of the interior was completed in 1989.
