Windmill Moulin des Agrémonts in Bléré,Touraine, Centre - Val de Loire.

The mill is an authentic 19th century hollow post mill. Abandoned, the town of the Bléré bought the mill in 2003 after it had been left to deteriorate since ceasing operations in 1877. They spent years restoring it and opened it to the public in 2009. The post mill was unique in that it pivoted on a central post allowing the complete sail structure to rotate to take advantage of the wind in whatever direction it was blowing.
