Mill of Peace Klerken

This mill, also known as the Mill Vancoillie, was built in 1879. In 1917 the mill, which was used as an observation post by the Germans, was destroyed. The ruins remained as a memorial of the First World War.

It is recently restorated and now served again as opservation post.
