Saint Nicholas Church Meijel - Meijel

N 51.3444064 / E 5.8870025

Until 1903, there was a twelfth-century tower and a church that was probably just as old. In 1835 this church became too small and was replaced by a Waterstaatkerk, but the tower remained.

When the Waterstaatkerk became too small, another church was built. Now the tower was demolished as well. The new church was called the 'cathedral of the Peel' because of its beauty and size. The church was not yet fully furnished at the time of its completion; that was an ongoing process until, on 25 September 1944, it was blown up with a large quantity of dynamite by the retreating Germans. When the Germans retook the church in November, it was blown up for the second time. Nothing more than rubble remained.

The current church was put into use in 1955. In 1992, the church was refurbished.
