    Legend of the Pompeschijter

    The little history says that a man who's during the fair in the town has drink to much and eat much pies to the plums. He feel asleep for any hours. When he awoke he was seized with cramp on his belly. So he looked for toilets and al pubs where closed. He panicked and found no better place to do what he must do in a pump.
    Now, one of the specialities from Dadizele is plumcakes and received the residents the nickname :"Pumpshiters"
    The tourist office have made a walking path 8.7 km long who's come near the beautiful places of the town.

    La petite histoire raconte qu'un fermier venu fêter le 15 Août en ville bû trop de bière accompagnée de tarte aux prunes (spécialitée des patissier du coin) Il tomba endormi sur un banc du parc et se reveilla en pleine nuit en ayant des crampes d'estomac (les prunes donnant pleinement leur effet) . Un besoin pressant se fit sentir mais tous les cafés etaient fermés depuis longtemps, il se mis à la recherche de toilettes mais n'en trouvant pas , le pauvre homme ne trouva rien de mieux que de se soulager dans le bassin d'une pompe. La légende était née. Et depuis se jour mémorable les habitants de Dadizele reçurent le surnom de "Pompeschitters" (Traduisez: chieurs de pompes) Deci dela vous verez encore des pompes dans les jardins ou en facades de maisons rappelant ces faits d'armes !

    The Pumpshiter or Pompeshitjer

    Apparently a man who had been drinking too much, and who would blame him with all that wonderful Triple Karmeliet, Kastell blond, Leffe blond, Kriekboon, and so on! - and then eating too much plum tart - which is also a famed dish in Dadizele - and not being able to find a toilet in time having to let loose on a handy water well!

    So its now the town of pumpshiters and as you roam about you will see numerous references such as a pub called the Pumpshiter, and a 8km walking route the Pumpshiter pad, - just unfortunate I didnt take photos of these references!

    but in the park in the cente of Dadizele, green and tranquil, is a sculpture in memorium to this local icon! Along with his big piece of plum tart!
