    February 2021: Ankle-deep mud awaits us on Burgholzbach, the forest work with heavy equipment has left its mark. Contrary to plan, we choose the northern path along the stream, the southern one is a mud desert.
    Impressive amounts of water tumble from all sides into the overcrowded Burgholzbach and cause the ponds to overflow.
    So much water, hopefully there will be enough for the coming summer.

From the Kremershammer, founded in 1607 shortly before the mouth of the Burgholzbach in the Wupper, only the foundation walls are preserved. From the Bremershammer, the Plätzershammer, the Evertshammer and the Nöllenkotten, however, there are hardly any traces left. There were a total of four hammer mills and two grinding docks on the stream.
    On a mountain spur between the brook and the Wupper was the early medieval ring wall system Burggraben. ... "
