The watermill at Sint-Gertrudis-Pede (Pedemolen) in the municipality of Dilbeek is the only working watermill in the Pajottenland, and is protected as a monument since 1975
The original mill, built in 1392 was one of the five mills in the Land of Gaasbeek. After being destroyed by a fire in 1763, the mill was restored. Also living quarters were added. Until 1963, they kept milling with water power, after that they used an electric engine. The mill was completely shut down in 1970. In 1990 restoration was begun, so nowadays it still can be used as a mill.
