Valitov's Windmill from the village of Nizhny KarakitanShort description
The shattered windmill from the village of Nizhny Karakitan (Drozhzhanovsky district, Republic of Tatarstan) was built in 1914, was located on a historical site. Smock mill with six sails and unknown number of millstones. Log construction. Was used as a flour mill (flour).
|Condition||The windmill is destroyed, the monument doesn't exist anymore|
|Mechanism||Parts of mechanism are lying of the ground|
The windmill was collapsed in 2014 during strong wind. It was a Volga region smock will.
There are two photographs of this mill: here (it is said that it is a mill near the village of Starye Ishli. We went to this village, but nobody had heard about the mill), and here. There has been preserved a part of the sailcloth on the sail of the mill, which is quite rare. We assume that the mill had six sails because if you look at its sails you will see that between the surviving sail and the wreck of another one in the photo the angle is not of 90 degrees. Shortly before collapsing the mill was recognized as a monument here, photos of mechanism parts lying on a ground here.
