On the other hand lies a high northwest-southeast-facing deck sandrug between two marshy highland areas, the Deurnese Peel and the Limburg Peel. In the mid-nineteenth century, the region began to systematically win the cattle for fuel. The area was made accessible to large-scale turf mining. Grooves and slots are fired for drainage and ponds for the discharge of the peat. Thus, large parts of De Peel were dug out, often to the underlying layer of sand. Traces of this large-scale painting are still clearly visible in De Groote Peel.
