The Kerbroué Mill


Previously known as the 'Maincrom mill' (curved stone), the name of the plot where it was built in the 18th century and then rebuilt in the 19th century. It was upgraded and refurbished in 1893: a new floor was added along with a second pair of grinding wheels. The last survivor of the region, it was used until the end of 1960. At that time, it was still in the middle of pastures and cereal fields.

In 2004, when it was bought by the municipality of La Turballe, it was restored and became part of La Turballe’s heritage.

The Kerbroué mill ... You must visit the mill so you can discover the mechanism which crushes the grain to extract the flour. Over 4 levels, the strength of the 52m² wings moves the wheel, the lantern and the large piece of iron which, in turn, and using several gears, turn the sorter, the grinding wheel and the sieve to obtain the fine flour and the gruel..
