UNESCO - Mill Network At Kinderdijk-Elshout, The Netherlands


The Kinderdijk-Elshout mill network is an outstanding man-made landscape that bears powerful testimony to human ingenuity and fortitude over a millennium in draining and protecting an area by the development and application of hydraulic technology. The site illustrates all the typical features associated with this technology – dykes, reservoirs, pumping stations, administrative buildings and a series of beautifully preserved windmills.

The Netherlands are one of the most active postcrossing countries, yet is hasn't been easy to obtain Unesco cards as beautiful as this one - thank you Moniek, and for a variety of stamps! :)
