    De Bronkerk (church)

    In the early days the people of Ugchelen who had the religion 'Dutch reformed' went to the nearby village Beekbergen for the church. In the years they had the need to get a church in their own village of Ugchelen. In 1891 a church member build a little building for the Sunday school and evangelism goals on the place where the church is nowadays. In 1914 the little building was turned to a chapel. In 1924 they started to build the present church.

    Around the village of Ugchelen you will find several lands. These lands are for growing corn, wheat or grain. When I was watching them, the farms/local people were only making the land ready for planting them. But it is nice to see the proces of seeing them grow.

    Brongebied is in English source area. Winkewijertspreng is the name of the little/small stream running through this source area. It is possible to cycle through it (if you use the cycling trail of 20 km through Ugchelen). But you can walk through it as well. You will have nice views of the stream. If you want, you can walk throughout the source area.

    At the end of the 1990s the Winkewijert has been repaired due to the subsidy of the province Gelderland and the Service Rustic Area. It was ainitiative of the Waterschap Veluwe Watersociety Veluwe) en the City Council of Apeldoorn. They wanted to repair a very important piece of culture history. The stream was showed again.
