Bat bridge in the Anna forest.
The Peelrand fracture runs through the Annabos, the Loose Beemd and the Revennekes and the Melle fracture and the Hoevense fracture close to each other through Slabroek. The Peelrand fracture is nicely visible in the landscape due to the height difference in the landscape and the seepage of iron-rich water in contrast to Melle fracture and the Hoevense fracture, these do not cause height differences. The height difference is particularly noticeable in the 2018 built bat bridge in the Annabos. The walking tour goes over the bat bridge of the lower situated drier grounds in the Central Slenk through the wetter higher ground in the Peelhorst. On the Peelhorst there is a less permeable loam layer beneath a layer of well-drained river sand and flows towards the Central Slenk. The fine cover sand in the Central Slenk also allows the water to pass through less quickly, so that it seeps to the surface like seepage water. Contrary to what you would expect, the high soils are wet and the lower soils stay dry, this rare form of seepage is hot. The Bedafse Bergen is a forest area with a drifting sand ridge that originated in the Middle Ages and was planted with coniferous forest in the early 20th century, the drifting sand ridge with heights of more than 20 meters has been maintained. There is also a drifting sand ridge in the Slabroekse Bergen, which is not as high and overgrown, but has a beautiful view of an adjacent heathland at various places.
