Geocache Description:


Dzirnavu konstrukcija, to iekārtas un detaļas, kas tika veidotas un pārbaudītas gadsimtu gaitā, bija masīvas, bet dzirnavu ēku arhitektoniskais veidojums — vienkāršs un racionāls. Dzirnavas bija novada lepnums un atdzīvināja tālaika lauku ainavu, un arvien atgādina par aizgājušo gadu godību lauku teritorijās. Lai arī no kuras puses iebrauktu Stelpes pagastā, ceļiniekus allaž ir sagaidījušas vējdzirnavas – Ķiru, Šķērstu jeb Sveķu, Kāravu, agrāk – Strazdu.

Šodien Latvijā ir saglabājušās salīdzinoši nedaudz vējdzirnavu, galvenokārt saglabājušās mūra konstrukcijas, un tikai dažas no vējdzirnavām joprojām ir darba kārtībā.

Šķērstu jeb Sveķu vējdzirnavas celtas 20. gadsimta sākumā. Vējdzirnavu sienas būvētas no sarkanajiem ķieģeļiem un sienu biezums ir 75 cm. Dzirnakmeņi, riteņi un gaņģi tajās saglabājušies, lai gan pašas vējdzirnavas ir pamestas un lēnām sagrūst.

Šķērstu windmills

The structure of the mills, their equipment and parts, which were designed and tested over the centuries, were massive, but the architectural establishment of the mill buildings was simple and rational. The mill was the pride of the county, in Stelpe parish the travellers have always been greeted by windmills – Ķiru, Šķērstu and Kāravu windmills.

Today only few windmills have remained in Latvia, mainly wall structured, and only a few of them are still working.

Šķērstu or Sveķu windmills were built in the early 20 th century. The walls of the windmill are constructed of red bricks and the thickness of the walls is 75 cm. Millstones, wheels and gaskets remain, although the windmills themselves are abandoned and slowly crushed.
