The mill dates from the XVIIe century for some, others advance the date of 1646, the historic buildings propose the date of 1807 (surely relative at the date related to the lintel of the small opening in frontage to see photo united).
As for much of mills locate in zone of altitude, a level transport on torrents of altitude led has a tank transport of hands of man who allows him the drive of the mechanism.
The mechanism functions according to the principle of the horizontal wheel has trough, a lower grinding stone fixes posee on a lintel, surmontee of another mobile grinding stone turning on it, these two grinding stones are crossed by a vertical axis animates by a horizontal wheel has troughs.
Less known of the general public, because they are often invisible and less widespread, horizontal the wheels known as has troughs are dotees blades (or troughs) of forms curved. Water coming from the tank locates higher makes it possible to thus increase from the low provision (often under the mill) and horizontal of the wheel the drop height the horse-power of the unit.

This opening having made party of the project of restoration as it should be received a door of wood with the identical one. The nails of the old door seems to have been recovers one by one to replace them on new joineries.
