Legucki Mill

Legucki mill was a possession of our family in the XV century. Short period before the year 1500 mill ceased to be the possession of Pilewski‘s. Legucki mill was burned completely by German Knights. This was done as an act of revenge against Mikolaj III for his activities in the Thirteen Year war. This area for many years was a popular hunting ground.

One can find there also an alley of ancient Lime Trees. These trees belong to ancient times and could be as old as thousand years. Looking at these alley‘s of limes one can acknowledge that they remember the Pilewski‘s. It not easy to find this place, thanks to my friend from school years Stan Kwiecinski I was able to find this corner.

This bridge finde itself on one of the arterie of the River Pasleka-Gilwa, for sure this place was the abode of Legucki Mill. Unfortunately there is no sign left of the mill. The ravine from the bridge is quite deep. This could indicate that water in this place was raised by the dam to the mill. The existence of alley lime trees and leading to the bridge indicate that the mill was in this place.

Then as a young knight he had to display knighthood abilities. In the beginning of the year 1455 he took over the leadership over a team of knights in the castle of Szczytno.
