    N.H. St. Victorschurch

    Opening hours

    On appointment only through Mr. J. v.d. Bovenkamp.

    This little church was built somewhere in the 15th century and in later centuries other parts of the church were built.

    Most beautiful of this church is it's interior. So if you want to visitl, note the telephone number otherwise the door keeps locked.

    "De Blauwe Steen" is the name of a "blue" stone in the center of the town. Once used to punish people for having not paid taxes and other criminal or scandoulous acting.

    The people got chained on the stone and there was no getting away from the laughter and bullying of all people in the town.

    I'll add a picture next time!

    This is an old windmill completely made out of wood. It can be visited inside, but not often.

    I know at least one date and that's the last sunday of July.

    If you are walking through this little town, which is the only good way to discover it properly, you meet up with a little park with some deer, chickens, goats etc.

    It is not big! It is probably no very special to you!

    But it's big for me, because this little park has named after my grandfather. Mr. P. Roeffen.

    This is the Wethouder Roeffen Park. My grandfather used to be one of the loco-mayors of this little town.

    So you can imagine I am kind of proud that this park has my family name on it.
