Moulin-Musée Wintenberger

Mill (FREVENT)


Spoken languages : anglais


Nestled on the banks of the River Canche, the Saint-Vaast mill is a reminder of the rural and industrial history of the Ternois region. Ever since the time of the crusades, it has regularly been destroyed and then rebuilt: today it houses the Wintenberger museum. This little museum recounts the evolution of agriculture from 1850 to 1950, with the race to mechanization. It contains an impressive collection of materials and tools made by the Wintenberger company, manufacturers of agricultural machines in Frevent from 1837 to 1967. There are also hundreds of photos, design plans and models to help you understand the history of this particular aspect of heritage.
