Final update of 2011

Two more pages about municipalities in the Achterhoek region of the Gelderland province were added; a fairly big one about Berkelland and a very modest one about Bronckhorst. The first is accompanied by a page about the St. Caecilia in Rietmolen (picture), a church designed by architect C.A. Hardeman. More pages about specific churches in the Achterhoek are about to follow later, but first I'll aim my attention at some other part of the country.

And so another year comes to an end. A year in which all the province's sections were moved, the old weblog was left for a new one and a start was made to a more bilingual website.

This year's score in numbers: 5 new pages about architects, 17 about towns and municipalities and 31 about specific churches. A total of 53 new pages. Add to that the many older pages which were improved with new pictures or expanded with churches and/or locations, not to forget the 53 pages that now have Dutch text as well as English. I think I can be proud. See you next year!

New architects

Two more pages about architects. Both catholics and Traditionalists; C.A. Hardeman (1893-1961) and G.M. Leeuwenberg (1899-1967). Another thing these pages have in common is that there's so little biographical information on them; I simply could not find more about them.

Again: Gelderland updates. And some Limburg as well.

Still in the Gelderland section, the page about Oude Ijsselstreek municipality has been expanded. Completely new is the page about another municipality in the Achterhoek region, Oost Gelre. Supplementing this page are pages about two churches in Lichtenvoorde, the reformed Johanneskerk (picture) and the catholic St. Bonifatius

Also, there are a few changes to the Limburg section. What used to be the page about the town of Sittard has been expanded to cover the municipality of Sittard-Geleen and now has a second page added with churches in Geleen and more. Far from complete, but much better than before. The page about Valkenburg aan de Geul has a few more pictures.
