In brief:
Vrijland (litt: Free Land) is the compound where the Dutch Hackerspace Hack42  is housed. The Hackerspace rents two stories in the building seen on the heading of the website. Not visible there, to the far left, is a chapel which is currently in use for weddings, conferences,  exhibitions, parties, etc. It is there where I installed a Foucault Pendulum. You can find it on Google Earth coordinates 52 deg 02'14.21"N, 5 deg 54'05.84"E.

Building the setup in the back of the chapel. The Top Mount is hanging off from the balcony at approximately 5.5 meter high. In future it should be mounted to a raft of the roof, some 4 meters higher. I'll do that only when I am very sure that it needs no attention for at least a year, because it is a hard to access location. With the experience of the broken cable this will be postponed to next year.
