This chapel is located at the intersection of Oude Wijnendalestraat , Steenveldstraat and Hillestraat.

This simple , triangular-shaped chapel is somewhat sheltered by a tree at number 2. In a small alcove , the mother and child stand behind glass. It was built in 1983 . The stone contains the inscription "H Mary Mother of God, pray for us".

This is an example of a non-accessible field chapel. They are so small or flat that they cannot be walked on. They are usually cut-out mini-chapels with a niche containing a statue . Sometimes these chapels are placed on a pillar or masonry elevation. Inaccessible field chapels are often erected by a family, community, or organization as a token of gratitude . In principle, they are also responsible for the upkeep of the chapel.
