Musée du Moulin, Wissant

Late 19th century roller-milling machinery, with flour-grading/ sieving machine in background.

A system of chutes and conveyors handled the grain and flour products from milling through to bagging

Preserved watermill
In a region of windmills, it’s rare to see a watermill. The mill at Wissant nestles in the valley of a small stream that cuts through the hills between Calais and Boulogne. Its machinery dates back to the 1920’s, and includes all the equipment that a small town roller-mill would have for milling local grain, and sieving out the white flour for local bakers.
