Used to mill trass and chalk. Although in the 19th century an engine was placed, to make it less dependent on the wind, it was still wind-operated until 1940. The mill stopped operating in 1954.
After that it was used as storage place and gradually deteriorated. Thanks to the 'Stichting Krijtmolen d'Admiraal' it was restored, and brought back into operation in 1967. Now it is sporadically used to mill raw material.
