Store Ryde Mølle
Store Ryde Mølle is hundreds of years old and is idyllically situated in hilly terrain. The distinguished old mill consisted of both farm, mill, bakery and grocery trade and has belonged to Rydhave Slot. Store Ryde Mølle is one of many water mills, which over time has utilized the power of the water here in the melting water valley.
The road passes through the building complex and you automatically set off to enjoy the view and hear the water's noise from the mill lake. Once you get through the nice courtyard you can stop for a moment on the hilltop and enjoy the most beautiful view of the Store Ryde Mølle.
The mill is mentioned back in history. Only in the first 30 years of the 20th century the farm became a living center for western part of Ryde. Also, farmers from Handbjerg and Borbjerg transported their grain to the old mill to ground the grain. In the farm there was also a fairly large feed stuff business and bakery which was shut down around 1910. In 1922-23, the electricity came to Ryde and the farmers got their own grinding mill. Thus the interest in large mills disappeared.
The mill is currently privately owned.
