If you drive through the village of Schildfeld, you will inevitably pass the old Schildmühle. It looks abandoned, but a closer look reveals that renovation work has begun in recent years.

Not too much is known about the history of the technical monument on the river Schilde. It is certain that there was a mill at that place already in 1545, at least it was mentioned in the official register of Boizenburg in that year. There is no further evidence of an earlier existence so far. The mill used the water power of the Schilde, a small stream that meanders through the landscape there. In 1721 the mill and the farmstead belonging to it were taken over by the Tabel family. In 1890, the then owner Friedrich Tabel began the construction of the new red brick mill that still stands there today. His initials and the year of construction can be seen on the left side gable of the building. The owner of the new mill now diverted the driving water through a specially constructed mill ditch; the water wheel was replaced by a turbine drive. A remnant of the original sawmill can still be seen behind the separately built cellar. This was supplied with water power by a 90 meter long wire rope drive. The resulting abrasions on the mill are still clearly visible.
In 1991, restoration of the badly damaged mill building was begun. The surrounding yard areas were cleared and old outbuildings and foundation remains were removed. The now badly deteriorated mill ditch was also restored. Finally, on May 1, 1999, the new mill technology was put into operation. Since then, a flap turbine and a 50 kW generator have been producing electricity for about 60 households.
