Bock windmill at Parchen

Burger Straße, 39307 Genthin, OT Parchen

This officially listed historical windmill was bought in the “Altmark“ and was rebuilt in the city of Parchen. The mill has a cottage-like wooden body that includes the grinding gear and recreation room. The blades have a wing span of more than 18 meters. By the help of a wooden screw it was possible to turn the whole mill into the wind's direction. The mill had been used for grinding grain until the 1960s. In 1974 the city of Parchen decided to become the owner of the mill and renewed parts of it until 1992. In 2010/2011 the building was reconstructed for around 100,000 Euros.
