Today, since noon, there has been snow, ideal to visit these rural communities with my neighbour with his car, and take some pictures
Hopefully you can enjoy this visit

Provincial border with East Flanders and the Netherlands, Zeeland, lies Middelburg.
This municipality is part of Maldegem.

Middelburg was built between 1452 and 1465 by order of Pieter Bladelin, governor of the finances of Philip the Good and treasurer of the Order of the Golden Fleece. It included a church, a monastery, a guest house, ramparts, a drainage canal to the Lieve (canal Ghent - Damme) and a castle. A free annual fair was set up from 1465. After the destruction of Dinant by Charles the Bold, Bladelin brought a number of craftsmen from Dinant to Middelburg. This craft gave Middelburg the privileges of Edward IV, King of England, after which a cloth industry was also set up. After the death of Pieter Bladelin, his widow, Margareta de Vageviere, received permission from Charles the Bold to rule over the manor.

I hope you like it
