Photographer's Note

From a bike trip.

A restored post mill from 1820 in village Sobótka.
Another look into the past!
I think it's worth it, I was fascinated!

The post mill is the earliest type of European windmill. Its defining feature is that the whole body of the mill that houses the machinery is mounted on a single vertical post, around which it can be turned to bring the sails into the wind.

Sobótka is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Ostrów Wielkopolski, within Ostrów Wielkopolski County, Greater Poland Voivodeship, in west-central Poland. It lies approximately 20 kilometres north-east of Ostrów Wielkopolski.
