Geocache Description:


Ce vieux moulin sans ailes rappelle qu'autrefois on était ici sur la route de la Beauce à Paris ou travaillaient de nombreux meuniers. Il aurait été construit au début du 17e siècle par les frères hospitaliers de la Charité alors propriétaires des terrains. 
A la Révolution, le moulin de la Charité devint la propriété de l'Assistance Publique qui le loua à un particulier. Il fut alors transformé en une petite guinguette.
Quand la ville de Paris décida en 1819 de construire de grands cimetières en dehors de la ville, elle acquis le terrain et le moulin qui devint la demeure du gardien. 
Jugé peu intéressant, il failli plusieurs fois être détruit, mais fut finalement classé en 1931 comme "vestige du vieux Paris".
C'est aujourd'hui l'un des 2 seuls moulins subsistant à Paris avec celui de la Galette. Il est plus ou moins vide et servirait de remise à outils.
Ne risquez pas de prendre une tuile sur la tête, la cache est accessible en toute sécurité.

English
This old wingless mill reminds us that we were here on the road from Beauce to Paris where have worked many millers. It was built in the early 17th century by the Brothers of Charity who were the land owners.
During the Revolution, the mill of Charity became the property of the Assistance Publique who rented it to an individual. It was then transformed into a small tavern.
When the city of Paris decided in 1819 to build large cemetery outside the city, it acquired the land and the mill became the home of the keeper.
Considered as unattractive, it was decided to destroy it several times, but was eventually classified in 1931 as "a vestige of the old Paris."
It is now one of only two remaining mill in Paris with the "moulin de la Galette" in Montmartre. It is more or less empty and serves as a tool shed.
Do not risk taking a tile on the head, the cache is accessed safely.

Notice: you could need some time to find the box, so if you don't have this time (i know that, i'm often in the same situation when on holidays), please don't log a "need maintenance"
