'This Dutch complex, inclusive of the surrounding ring wall, presumably dates from the years 1790 to 1800, and was previously the farmstead of the farm Vlakkeland, which was granted to Huguenot Jean Roux in 1694.' via Artefacts (click here to view). 

The farmstead has no formal use and is threatened by nearby development. The attention and interaction of national heritage bodies is needed to save the buildings, integrate them with the local community, set new values and construe a project that is inclusive and thus protects the threatened structures. (Extract from the nomination form for the 2016 endangered heritage campaign).
