From House Mills to Sea Mills

Price 75.00 DKK

The book describes the development of Danish wind turbines from 1862 until today. In 1862, the building of windmills was no longer prohibited by law for certain segments of the population, allowing any danish resident to install one if they chose.

The Farm Mills

72 pages

Price 75.00 DKK

The book deals with the period from 862 till after World War II, an important chapter in the windmill history of Denmark. From 1862, the mill trade was no longer protected by law, and the lifting of restrictions on the establishment of new windmills became very significant for agriculture in particular. Now small and big farms alike could have their own windmill. The result was the installation of thousands of windmills, from very small, simple mills known as roof mills, to big factory made machines. The book also describes the development of the technology during this time.
