the mill wheels turn in Terres-de-Meuse

At one time, an array of mills turned on the Hesbaye plateaux, up to the Amay heights. There are only a few left, often missing part or all of their wings. In the small valleys that lead to the Meuse such as they Mehaigne, Hoyoux and its tributaries, other mills used water as their power. The Dreye site underwent restoration of its buildings and was restored along with its buildings and diversion by its new owners. The mill wheel at Toultia still occasionally turns. The Geer mill has been listed and restored. The Mills at Fallais and Lavoir on the Mehaigne have also been refitted by their owner.
