Geocache Description:


Cette série vous propose la visite de deux moulins à vent restaurés, à ce jour, en petite Beauce, et d’un lieu insolite en bonus. Pour trouver cette dernière cache, il faudra noter les indices qui se trouvent dans les boites des deux moulins. Ce sont des moulins-pivots ou chandelier. La partie travaillante (cage) pivote à l’aide de la queue (longue poutre arrière) permettant de chercher le vent et comprend trois étages dans lesquels se trouvent les mécanismes de broyage, et les systèmes d’alimentation en grains et de récupération de farine.

This series offers the visit of the two restored windmills, to date, in small Beauce, and an unusual bonus. To find the last cache, it must be noted that the indices are in boxes of two mills These are windmills, pivots, or candlestick. The working part (shaft) rotates with the tail (long beam rear) to get the wind and has three floors which are located in the grinding mechanisms and systems to supply grain
and flour recovery .

Ce moulin du XVe siècle a tourné jusqu'en 1945. Restauré une première fois par les héritiers du dernier meunier, il tourne à nouveau à l'été 1975. Petit à petit, tempête après tempête, il se dégrade de nouveau jusqu'en 2006-07, années au cours desquelles il subit une nouvelle et profonde restauration. Il mérite le détour et se visite. Ses ailes sont un système Berton. Cette mécanique servait à régler les planchettes de bois constituant l’aile pour en ajuster la portance suivant le vent, ce qui simplifiait le travail du meunier par rapport aux ailes entoilées dont la toile était réglée manuellement par enroulement..

This mill has turned the fifteenth century until 1945. Restored once by the heirs of the last miller, he runs again in the summer of 1975. Gradually, storm after storm, it deteriorates again until 2006-07, years during which he underwent a new and profound restoration. It deserves a visit and tour.
Its wings are a Berton. This mechanism was used to adjust the slats of wood forming the wing to adjust the lift after the wind, which simplified the work of the miller from the wings with fabric-backed canvas was set manually by winding.
