On the ramparts of Heusden, close to the Bergsche Maas River, there are a total of three windmills, all of them corn mills. In times of siege, the windmills ensured that the city was self-sufficient.
The city of Heusden received city rights in 1318. Heusden's castle had belonged to successive dukes of Brabant; in 1357 it passed into the hands of the counts of Holland. ramparts and moats were constructed, bringing the castle within the city's fortifications.
Just like the rest of the world we are getting a bit stir-crazy...so processing some shots in my archive ;) Stay healthy.
