Wintenberger Mill & Museum, Frévent

Wintenberger Museum
Displays of agricultural machines, tools and the life of farm-workers

Old watermill
In a 900-year-old mill, photos, displays and collections of objects recall the memory of generations of farm-workers in the Ternois valley region.

First combine harvesters
You can also follow the story of the Wintenberger firm's agricultural machinery business - which brought the first combine harvesters to the farmers of the Artois.

You will see what work in the fields was like before tractors, when there were only horses and back-breaking manual labour.
