- Netherlands / N.Ireland
- Real Name
Not so modern, the work on this building started in 1547.Relatively modern brickwork (not medieval) so perhaps Napoleonic era? And the houses with the roof windows look a bit Continental Europe.
So maybe not the Netherlands but part of what was once the "Spanish Netherlands"? Which I think covers most of modern Belgium and Luxembourg and small parts of France and Germany... maybe Belgium?Over the centuries it has been occupied by Prussian, Dutch, and French forces. even the Spanish ruled for a short period.
Is the reference to "the town" a hint that it may be in the district of Geilenkirchen but not the town itself?Germany yes, the town of Geilenkirchen no.
Hi Alan, time for some help. The reference to a town is just that, the location is in the middle of a town, not a city. and not Geilenkirchen.Is the reference to "the town" a hint that it may be in the district of Geilenkirchen but not the town itself?
I am struggling with this one, as the area in general was once the Roman frontier any searches I do around that theme are not really helping to narrow it down, and I have not been able to find any reference to a building started in 1547.
