Historical facts: The clay from the Hollandse IJssel for baking the ice stones was transported in carts that were pulled by Shetland ponies. These ponies were called 'hitting'. The name Hitland is derived from these hitting.
Hitland-Noord or Klein Hitland consists mainly of forest, mainly poplars and also ash, alder and willow. There are two 'wheels' or 'far-away lakes' on the IJsseldijk. These are small pools of water, created during one of the early floods of the Dutch IJssel and where the water has remained behind the dike.
This and much more historical places you can find in the area.
