The mill was used in the Crusader period, headed by a British guard post from the time of the Arab uprising.
It is highly recommended to visit Ein Afek with a chauffeur in Israel in the autumn period, because it is more pleasant to walk around the swamp, and many migratory birds that pass over the Reserve can be predicted, and some even winters in it.
