The Oukoopse Mill is a hollow post mill dating from about 1674. Until the 1960s, the mill was used to drain the 239-hectare Oukoop polder. Today, it is owned by Rijnlandse Molenstichting, which restored the mill in 1989. The Oukoopse Mill is a national monument located in beautiful landscape.
In 2019, the mill underwent a restoration of the watercourse and is fully operational on a voluntary basis. It is a spare pumping tool.
Provided the wind is strong enough and the air is good, the mill usually operates on Saturday (afternoons). You are welcome to come and see the mill working and learn about the craft of a water miller. Millers Nico van den Bos or Jan Ottevanger will be present.
