English information.

Steep stairs from an old ship

In this old Flour Mill from the beginning of 1900 grain was ground to produce the flour for making bread. Then Zeeuws Vlaanderen was the grain producing centre for Rotterdam and Dordrecht. Mainly because it was easy to transport by sea and canals from the port of Walsoorden. The Flour in Walsoorden was produced in the beginning, by using Horse Power and later after 1911 by Steam driven machinery, at the time the most advanced method in the industry. In 1922 a big fire destroyed the mill, and the remaining buildings where later turned into housing for the local community. 

After the great Storm disaster of 1953 the Dutch rebuilt and strengthened the damaged dykes. Due to the Delta Project some of the dykhouses had to be demolished to make way for the repair and strengthening of the dykes, leaving ‘De Bloemfabriek ‘ (the Flour Mill) the building next to the Sea dyke of the Wester Schelde.  

 Nowadays there is a small beach area adjacent to the old ferry landing, wich is now enjoyed by many local and people and tourists. Who like to enjoy the sun and watch the constant flow of world shipping to and from Antwerp. From inside “De Bloemfabriek” you can sit and enjoy the panoramic view of the Wester Schelde while enjoying coffee or tea and biscuits.  

However, you can stroll only for the sheep on the dike, because peace and space prevail here.
