In the middle ages, that region was marsh and about 1626 under surveillance from the undertaker Wenzel Cobergher they made the hall region dry. This mills was part of it because pumped the water to the sea. But is was only about 1787 by Vandemey that it was done definitely. During the war in 1944 they let water again into the region by the germans. Because of the seawater the hat to put lot of lime into the ground and now it is one of the fruitful regions.

I hope with my small explanation you can understand it. The whole history you will find it on Google under "De Moeren"

Halo Arthur. Hartelijk dank voor je kommentaren bij deze nieuwe reeks. Dat verheugd me deze van jou te krijgen. Ik heb een klein beetje opzoekingswerk verricht maar heb natuurlijk niet de ganse geschiedenis neergepent. Dat zou teveel ruimte in beslag nemen. Daarom verwijs ik iedereen die wat interesse heeft naar "de moeren" bij Google.

Hartelijke groeten, Jacques

What a beautiful photo with such an interesting history. Thank you so much for sharing this fabulous history as well as the beautiful shot!

I am most fascinated by the lay of the land in the Panoramion location shot! What beautiful colors of all the individual fields and such! That's so neat!

Congratulations on a wonderful find!

Thank you very very much Mary Alice for your kind comment. Yes the fields in that region, and also in Belgium are always small. Not like in your country. When we see that from the sky it is really like on the Panoramio map. It seems like small pieces of texture are sewed together...

I wish you a very nice week-end. Greetings, Jacques
