About Molen De Speelman

In Overschie, until 1972, a round stone scaffolding mill “De Hoop” stood on the Delftweg near the Schie. For low-flying aircraft from Zestienhoven airport, this mill was a dangerous obstacle and it was therefore decided to relocate and rebuild the last mill of Overschie, once about 28, on the Overschiese Kleiweg. After the move, it was given the name De Speelman.
