Refsbøl Mølle - Hurup Thy

Refsbøl Mill is a Dutch wind turbine built in Hurup Thy in 1884.

The mill has a foundation of boulders and an octagonal superstructure with chipboard roofing.

The mill was in operation until 1962, when it was handed over to Hurup Håndværker- og Borgerforening in exchange for the association being responsible for maintenance in the future.

Refsbøl Mill was thoroughly restored in the late 1960s and again in 2006.
