Bangert is a village in northwest Netherlands, located in Medemblik, North Holland. It covers an area of 6.07 km² and had a population of 1430 in 2007.

Overview[edit]

Throughout its history Bangert has been competing with surrounding municipalities (esp. Andijk and Kerkbuurt) for land and population. For instance, in 1667 neighboring Kerkbuurt acquired a church and began pulling away some of Bangert's inhabitants. In the 19th and 20th centuries, poverty combined with landgrabbing by Wervershoof also diminished the village. In 2011, Bangert was incorporated in the Medemblik municipality.
