The Onze-Lieve-Vrouwentoren (Our Lady's tower) is one of the highest medieval church towers of the country: 98 m. The construction of the tower and the church was started in 1444. The church was demolished by an explosion in 1787, but the tower survived. The old lay-out of the church can still be seen by different types of stone, used in the pavement. It is now the reference point of the RD coordinate system, the coordinate grid used by the Dutch topographical service: the RD coordinates are (155.000, 463.000).
