The mill of Muids
The mill of Muids, a half-timbered construction, lays on two stone walls. It steps over a branch of the Seine river. The mechanism is made of a moving frame that enables to tune the height of the wheel to the river level.
The mill of Muids and the mill of Andé are the last mills of this
kind in Europe. They were very common in the area and especially on
the arches of the bridges crossing the Seine (such as the Saint-Jean mill
