D'n Blikken Emmer.

Milheeze is an old peel village, on the church square is the statue "De Vlikkensteker" with the flake shovel in his left hand, this is a shovel with raised edges with which strips of heather with a length of 60 cm and a width of 10 cm were cut loose. The forest areas of Nederheide and the Stempelberg were originally part of the extensive heathland area in the Peel. The countless dots in the Sibbelberg are drifting dunes that were created by sand drifts. De Sijp and Cleefswit are areas with an alternation of forest, heath and agricultural land, through which avenues run with beech and American oak. In the Cleefswit estate, pieces can still be identified that used to be part of the Bebakende Dijk, one of the first roads that ran through this area. The road consisted of beacons that were placed around the 800 to 1000 meters, fourteen in total, on which travelers could orient themselves. past D'n Blikken Emmer, a wooden climbing pole with a bucket in the top. The ranger was able to climb into this to detect forest fires. The pole was also a beacon, if the bucket was in the top, work was done, otherwise the working time was over.
