Windmill from the village of DubskoeShort description
The windmill from the village of Dubskoe (Perevozskiy district, Nizhny Novgorod region) is located on a historical site. The time of construction is unknown. Smock mill with four sails and unknown number of millstones. Frame. Was used as a flour mill (flour).
|Condition||The windmill is falling into ruin and may disappear|
|Status||In noone's possession, not used|
|Mechanism||Not restored, is going to ruin|
The following historical parts of the mechanism have been preserved:
Windshaft, Brake wheel, Upright shaft, Wallower.
There is a a stone stylobate instead of a wooden skirt in the lower part. At first, we assumed that the bottom of the mill has been altered for use with diesel engines. However, eight main pillars of the frame stand on top of the stylobate, and not on the ground. The operation of lifting the entire mill to a concrete base is meaningless. Apparently the mill was originally built on concrete. An iron vertical shaft (by the way, the only one made of iron we've found) also speaks in favor of a small age. If it is younger than 1943, than the mill in Isakovo, then it is the youngest historical mill.
