Though the mill is open to public, almost the whole mechanism is not original and, upon closer inspection, cannot work. The mill's cap is not able make a full turn, the sails are not long enough to turn the shaft, the hopper can not pour the grain, the grain can not be picked up from the vat, the second pair of millstones is lost, the rams and cams of the horizontal shaft would wear off quickly, the stonecrane would not be able to raise them.

However, despite all this, it is definitely worth visiting the mill, since it really shows the mill gears. Besides, it is the only mill with a combination of two pairs of millstones and a crushing system.
