Geocache Description:


Slēpnis ir neliela izmēra lock&lock kārba, kuras oriģinālais saturs ir viesu grāmata, zīmulis, informācija nejaušam atradējam un TB pirmajam atradējam.

Rideļu dzirnavas atrodas apmēram 80 km no Rīgas, ceļa Rīga - Talsi labajā puse. Dzirnavas šajā vieta bijušas jau sen. Pirmā pasaules kara sākumā dzirnavas nodega, bet pēc 1920. gada zemes reformas, kad tās ieguva īpašumā Kambalu dzimta, to darbība atjaunota. Te ir rupjo miltu malšanas gaņģis, putraimu un grūbu gaņģi. 20. gadsimta 30. gadu vidū uzstādīts tvaika dzinējs un kvalitatīvas bīdeļmašīnas. Dzirnavas otrreiz, Kambalu vadībā, savu darbību atsāka 1992. gadā, un jau pēc 2 gadiem te saka bīdelēt miltus un ražot mannu, bet 1996. - ražot putraimus un grūbas. Dzirnavas masveida graudu pārstrādei vairs neizmanto, bet nodemonstrēt, ka no graudiem rodas dažādi malumi, te saimnieki vienmēr laipni. Ekskursijā pa dzirnavām aplūkojams miltu malšanas process un turpat netālu esošajā kafejnīcā nobaudāmas pankūkas no dzirnavās maltajiem miltiem. Jau senos laikos, kad dzirnavas būvētas, radies Rideļu dzirnavezers. Tā apkārtnē ierīkotas atpūtas vietas gan nelielu svinību rīkotājiem, gan makšķerniekiem. Te var sarīkot pikniku un iznomāt laivu braucienam pa ezeru.
Dzirnavu apskate: S. Sv. 10:00 - 17:00. Ieejas maksa: Ls 0,50/ 1,00.


Cache is a small, lock&lock container that contains logbook, pencil, stashnote and TB for the first finder.

The Rideli Mill is situated approximately 80 kilometres away from Riga, on the right side of the Riga-Talsi highway. The mill has been situated in this place for a very long time. During the beginning of World War I, the mill burnt down, but after the agrarian reform of year 1920, it was acquired by the Kambala family and its operations were reinstated. There are premises for milling the rye flour, grits, and pearl-barley. In the mid thirties of the 20th century, a steam engine was installed there, along with qualitative grinding machinery. For the second time, the mill reinstated its operations under management of Kambala family in year 1992, and 2 years later they started grinding fine flour and make farina, but in year 1996 – pearl barley and grits. The mill is not anymore used for processing vast amounts of grain, but demonstrations of how various results can be achieved from milling the grain are kindly offered. On the excursion at the mill, the visitors can see the flour grinding process and then try out the pancakes made of freshly ground floor at the café, which is right across the road. Already back in the day, when the mill was constructed, the millpond of Rideli was formed. Around it, resting places and spots for organizing small events have been set up, also welcome are the fishermen. If you find this place to be appealing, you can also arrange a picnic there at any time and rent a boat to go boating in the millpond.
Open hours: Sa. Su. 10:00 - 17:00. Admission: Ls 0,50/ 1,00.
