From Calais we travel by coach through the countryside of Northern France, passing small towns and villages.........

Arriving in the outskirts of the city we see something different that appeals particularly to the mechanically minded - Lille's museum devoted to windmills (right and below).

Situated on the highway to Roubaix the site boasts two preserved, working pivoting windmills which visitors can watch in operation grinding corn, as well as a museum detailing the history of windmill technology.
