  • A forgotten about earthwork starfort from the 1627 siege of Grolle (Groenlo). Now excavated and reclaimed from the woodland it is a gem that really needs some historical re-enactment events to put...

  • Beautiful natural area with an old defence line from the city of Groenlo. You can walk over the old walls and get a good idea of the medieval battle field.

  • A masterpiece from the memorial history is what they tried to rebuild here. It was rebuilt using excavators and GPS, just like before. There is, as never before, a perfectly formed English schans. I do not even know what the exact reason was to rebuild it. It also has no future except the need to take care of it. The local government certainly can handle this. As long as they send amazingly high bills for paying the local taxes, there is no problem. We have to do with it. So it's ok.
  • Piece of bare ground with a rampart and dry moat around it.
