On our way back from the Waux Hall, we came across this place I had never noticed ! This "water machine" was build at the time the stream Trouille was rerouted. It's aim was to distribute drinkable water to the inhabitants by using a paddle wheel and a steam engine, which activated the water pumps. The machine stopped working completely around 1961. And now it is used as a rehearsal room for bands.
