Mill and castle

Le Vieux-Moulin (The Old Mill) rests on ancient bridge piers above the Seine river and in front of the castle of Tourelles at Vernon, France. The stone piers are from a bridge built in the 12th century. The watermill was built in the 16th century and had a wheel that used the flow of the river to drive a flour mill. The bridge was destroyed by flooding in the late 1600s and the mills wheel disintegrated over the centuries, but the building remains. The castle was built in 1196.
