Tank Barriers Engweg, Stoutenburg

Six restored tank barriers on the Engweg in Stoutenburg, municipality of Leusden. The barriers were found in Achterveld, where they served as a foundation for a barn from the end of WWII. Originally, four of the barriers were placed on the nearby Hessenweg. The other two on the Engweg. Their aim was to stop the German tanks. These barriers are special because they are fitted with rails.
