A bubbling brook, a belt-driven mill wheel going round and round, creaking joints and screeching steel wheels – the well oiled watermill will inspire all tech fans.
The first mention of the Plul Mill is from the charter of the Veszprém cathedral chapter, published in 1082, which later proved to be fake. Only the foundations of the structure you see today are from the building referred to in the document above, much of the rest of the mill was erected in 1910. Apart from a veil of flour, the air of centuries also surrounds the building.
What makes the industrial archaeological site, renovated a few years ago, even more interesting is that the technical mechanism of the mill is similar to that used by 19th century plank cutters in the Bakony.
