Second picture of the same mill, I took this image out of another side, with nice autumn colours.
Windmill “The New Parrot Windmill”

De Nieuwe Paregaai is an old mill in Bruges that once served as an oil mill. The mill was originally built in 1790 in the village of Beveren-aan-de-Yzer. In 1970 the mill was moved to Bruges and the name of the mill was changed from "Hoge Seinemolen" to "De Nieuwe Papegaai". This mill served as a replacement for the mill "De Paregaai" that previously stood on this spot. The movement of the mill was done via the canal on two rafts. It was not possible to transport the parts of the mill through the city centre. Once the mill was up, it still had to be set up as an oil mill, but that never happened. The mill is still completely empty inside today. The mill was restored between 2009 and 2010, but no plans have yet been made to redesign the mill as an oil mill. The mill is easily identified by the parrot on the roof.

I hope you like it
