Angelslo

Angelslo is a neighbourhood of the city Emmen in Drenthe, the Netherlands. Angelslo has an altitude of 24 meters (82 feet). In English, Angelslo would be called Anglesley or 'Anglesleigh.' In Old English this probably would be 'Anglesléah' as -ley or -leigh comes from Old English -léah, meaning an open spot in a forest in which people used to live.

The buildings in Angelslo were built in the 1960s. Typical for these buildings are the flat roofs.[1]
Angelslo has two elementary schools: Twiespan and O.B.S. Angelslo.[2] Besides that, Angelslo also has a shopping mall,[3] located at the Statenweg.
Statenweg is the main road that goes through Angelslo and branches off in smaller roads (Landschapslaan, Dingspellaan, Kerspellaan, Boerschapslaan, Holtlaan and Veldlaan), that in their turn branch off again.[4]
There are two churches in Angelslo: Evangelische Gemeente Emmen and Baptisten Gemeente Het Baken.[5] The mosque is located near the shopping mall and is called ISN Yildirim Beyazit Moskee.[6]
Angelslo also has a swimmingpool, Aquarena,[7] which is the only indoor pool of Emmen.
The hospital of Emmen is located on the border of Angelslo.[8]
