Westerhoven
Westerhoven is a village in the Dutch province of North Brabant. It is located in the municipality of Bergeijk, about 15 km southwest of Eindhoven. Westerhoven lies in a valley between the rivers 'Keersop' and 'Beekloop' which both flow just outside the centre of the village through a nice piece of nature. Already in prehistoric times there appears to be a settling of nomad tribes in this attractive area. The hill connecting the neighbor village Riethoven dates from Roman times. There has been found Frankish ceramics when they[who?] removed an old oak shore.[1][2] Westerhoven used to be part of the ‘heerlijkheid’ Bergeyk but became independent in 1810. Westerhoven was a separate municipality until 1997, when it became part of Bergeijk by municipality reclassification.[3] A Second World War cemetery containing 220 British soldiers was created near Westerhoven in October 1944
