Wheat and Sesame Mill

The original owner of this mill was Theof. Pertsemblis, e.a. This single storey building is made of stone and it has a tile-roof. It is one of the better preserved water-driven workshops. 

Fortunately, all of the water-driven machinery, as well as the sesame mill are still in working order.  At first the mill must have been used to produce wheat mill but later it was turned into a sesame mill. A defining characteristic of this mill is that water is supplied to the mill through inclined metal aqueducts. The energy created by the water is used to drive horizontal propellers.
