Oudegracht aan de Werf 332
‘Den Teeren Oven’
The residents of Den Teeren Oven, Oudegracht 332, are making this cellar habitable. They removed the plaster last year and the medieval stones (like ‘kloostermoppen’) under it revealed the history of the room.
Numerous shards have been dug up during the renovation, dating back to the twelfth century. The cellar was part of a cookie bakery in the sixteenth century and was separated from the neighboring house Sinter Niclaes by a wall in 1618. During the construction of stairs leading to the backyard, the current residents discovered a seventeenth century cisterne. Around 1900, this location was used to sell coal and briquettes from.
