Windmill from Semenkovo museumShort description
New windmill with historical parts was built in 2015 in the museum of wooden architecture "Semenkovo" (Vologda Region). Inverted postbased mill with six sails and one pair of millstones. Log construction. Was used as a flour mill (flour).
|Condition||The windmill is new, can grind flour|
The mill is an inverted post-based mill, the construction of trestle is similar to those of Arkhangelsk mills: it is rectangular at the bottom and it narrows upwards. However, the construction of the ladder resembles the mill in Kirillo-Belozersky monastery, i.e. the lower part of the ladder doesn’t move, and the upper one moves around the horizontal platform.
The first holiday with the operating mill is Maslennitsa 2015: here.
It’s easy to find videos, pictures and news about the mill. To start, we recommend to go here.
We would like to also note that it was possible to save a falling-into-ruin, not transported mill in the village of Grishkino in Vologda region instead of building a new one.
