Gelderland, a 'newish' page

A new page about the Renkum municipality has been added, containing all the objects that used to be on the old Oosterbeek page, but now with updated text, as well as churces in the villages Renkum and Heelsum. Not complete but nice anyway.

Nieuw in de Gelderland sectie is een pagina over de gemeente Renkum, ter vervanging van de oude pagina over Oosterbeek.

Gelderland, a new page

The first new page about the year is about the St. Donatus in Bemmel, a catholic post-war church by architect J.H. Sluijmer. This church was recently converted into a theater, but all pictures on this page were made back in 2006 (which illustrates how big my backlog is) when there was still no talk of closing the church, let alone about its future destination. The pictures are accompanied by a fairly comprehensive history.

First update of the year

A very belated happy new year to all of you, with the first month of 2018 almost over. The first update of the year is a small one, with a few new pictures on the page about the Reformed church in Ressen, Gelderland. 

Because I didn't in December, I'd like to take this opportunity to look back at 2017. There were 27 updates with at least one each month. There were a few new pages about towns and municipalities in Noord-Brabant and Zuid-Holland as well as seven seperate churches. Six new architects' pages were added. There were many small and big changes, including a few significant improvements to pages about towns and municipalities especially in the provinces Zuid-Holland and Gelderland. 11 pages were translated to Dutch. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things, but I think these are the highlights of last year. 

We'll see what 2018 will bring. I hope you'll enjoy it.

New Noord-Brabant pages

Two new pages were added to the Noord-Brabant section, one about the town and municipality of Roosendaal and the other about the adjacent Rucphen municipality. Also the page about a church in the latter municipality, the St. Willibrordus in the village of Sint Willebrord, has had a comprehensive update to its text.

In het Nederlands: twee nieuwe tweetalige pagina's, over de gemeenten Roosendaal en Rucphen

Noord-Brabant updates

The page about the Halderberge municipality is updated: two objects added, making the page almost complete. Also, there's a new page about a church in this municipality, the St. Johannes de Doper in Hoeven, a church in Expressionist style. See picture.

A new page in the architects section. Not about one specific architect this time, but about the three Oomen brothers and their successors. A family that has had quite a confusing history and spawned three generations of architects and two seperate architecture firms. Of course the page concentrates on their religious works and is illustrated with eleven pictures. Like the one above this message.

Gelderland update

The page about the Overbetuwe municipality has been expanded to the point that I consider it to be complete; pictures and descriptions of eight objects in five villages were added.
