Dutch Polder Mill This polder mill, built in 1862, was used for draining polders. In 1953, it was in an extremely dilapidated condition in Noordlaren (Province Groningen, the Netherlands). Following reconstruction in the Dutch Open Air Museum in 1960, the mill looked a whole lot better. It uses an Archimedean screw to force up water. This is a screw-shaped device that is able to raise water by two metres.

Y... Dutch... love it! Still will write ij in place of y in my English words sometimes!
