Molengang, a 'gang' of mills ..

The Netherlands, near Leidschendam and Stompwijk.

 

Each set of mills operating in series is called a Molengang, a 'gang' of mills.

The 3 mills in this photo drained the land by pumping water up 5 meters in total until 1951, when their task was taken over by modern methods.
