Moulin de Comprigny
Situated on an ancient Gallo-Roman site, this mill was built at the beginning of the XIIth century in the commune of Beuxes. Just 500 meters away, the Maumont spring feeds the mill, which was originally equipped with 2 spinning wheels 2.40 meters in diameter. It ceased all milling activity in 1919.
The current owner represents the 5the generation, and thanks to his energy and passion, he is restoring this architecture to the cachet of its beginnings. The paddle wheels will soon be turning and restore this mill to its former glory.
