The Patrimoin au fil de l'eau, located in a picturesque site steeped in history, offers captivating exhibitions - not only on the old flourmills, but also on the topic of water, such as the Entreroches canal. Guided or unaccompanied tours, waterfront terrace.
The Rod flourmills date back to the middle ages but finally closed down in 1990. Evidence of their use is still visible in the present buildings.
The Développement 21 Association renovated the 3000 m2 building so as to enable the public to rediscover it. Exhibitions, events and the projection of old films allow visitors to learn more about the site and its history.
Several other topics are touched on and each year new exhibitions are presented. In particular, one may mention the Entreroches canal, renewable energies, wild life, or the hydroelectric facilities that are to be found inside the building itself.
The visit is unaccompanied or guided (on request, free). The site also offers the guided visit “On the tracks of the Orbe beavers”.
