This visit during Covid-19 to Oostveld Oedelem, this is allowed in Belgium at the moment

Saturday a new bicycle trip of 35 km with different nice old farms are restauration to very nice farms.

The area used to be heathland in the possession of the Ter Doest Abbey. Part of the area was later forested. Limited buildings developed in the rural area to the east. The Ferraris map from the 1770s shows here, among other things, the hamlet of Den Hoorn along the road from Oedelem to Knesselare, and a street hamlet called Nieunstraete 1.5 kilometers to the northeast. In the east there was still a piece of uncultivated field area, the Swarte Veldt, adjacent to the even more eastern Maldegem Veldt (Maldegemveld).
The hamlets grew further and the buildings gradually continued along the connecting road between the two centers, the current Tinhoutstraat. The Atlas der Buurtwegen from the mid-19th century still shows the separate hamlet of Den Hoorn in the south and already gives the name Oostveld for the larger hamlet in the north-east. The Black Field Mill was built here around 1800, but it fell into disuse and a steam mill was replaced. In 1837 a spin school was established in the Oostveld, where the catechism was also taught. In the second half of the century the school was further expanded and a chapel was also built in 1890.

I hope you like it
