Wemeldinge (in Zeeuws Weumelienge) is a village in the Dutch province of Zeeland, located on the eastern Channel and the northern channel of the Channel by southern Beveland, with about 3100 inhabitants. Until 1970 it was an independent municipality, since that time it is part of the municipality of Kapelle. Kapelle is about 3 kilometers away and can be reached quickly via Wemeldingse Zandweg. Wemeldinge is surrounded by many meadows. On the north side of this village lies the Oosterschelde National Park, the largest national park in the Netherlands. Until 1992, ships at Wemeldinge had to use one of the three locks that made it possible to reach the Oosterschelde via the Channel by Zuid-Beveland. These were the small lock, the middle lock and the big lock respectively. The small lock was no longer in use since 1973. Today, this lock is used by the pleasure boat to get the Oosterschelde from the marina. However, since 1992 it is possible to go directly through. This was possible because a new branch of the channel was taken into use. The dikes along the canal are raised to delta height. In the village is a 14th century tower (tower) and 15th century (ship and choir) built-up church. East of the church, with the height of twelve meters, is the highest mountain of Zeeland, one of the fourteen meter high altitude of the church, located at the other side of the church. In Wemeldinge there are two mills, De Hoop from 1866 and the Aeolus from 1869. Furthermore, a part of the village, the village-planted Dorpsstraat, is designated a protected village view, one of the protected city and village views in Zeeland.
