Very nice place with a special history.
When Peter van de Venne and Jan Theeus established the first bleaching facility on the grounds of the present Boones Blijk in 1654, the quality of the fen water was a crucial element. The bottom of the fens was of white sand without organic pollution. As a result, the water was colorless and pure because it also contained no chemical components such as lime, iron and only a little chlorine. This made it extremely suitable for bleaching yarns and multiple types of textiles.
