Wegh van Meijl op Seven.

Between the Heesbeemden and the Van Zwienen Bos, the walk mainly takes unpaved paths through agricultural areas. The Heesbeemden consists of swamp forests with alder and willow and small plots of grassland. The now meandering stream Blakterbeek flows through the area. The Van Zwienenbos is a small, beautifully varied private forest. Through the Elsbeemden just south of Sevenum. two streams flow. From the west comes the Groote Molenbeek, which was meandered again a few years ago and made shallower but wider. The Elsbeek comes from the south and flows into the Grote Molenbeek. The interventions in the streams have made the entire area wetter. The vegetation consists largely of swamp forests and wet grasslands. After leaving the Elsbeemden, the Groote Molenbeek is followed. Sights include a sheepfold, basalt column of the fictional Wegh van Meijl op Seven and crosses and chapels in various places.
