This locality lies just north of Klosterhede heathland and between the towns of Lemvig and Struer (Figure 3-1). It comprises a roughly 700 m broad belt that stretches from Fabjerg church for about 3 km to the east along the road Fabjergkirkevej, and then for a further 500 m to the east. To the north this site abuts site 18 Nørre Nissum - Fabjerg and to the south it is adjacent to site 20 Klosterhede – Kronhede. The locality is a good example of the kind of landscapes developed along the MSL. This line marks the maximum extent of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet 23.000-21.000 years ago and is a boundary between two markedly different types of landscape. North of the MSL is a hilly dead ice landscape that formed when the ice retreated from its maximum position. To the south the landscape is dominated by extensive outwash plains formed when the ice was melting, as well as hill islands that are remnants of glacial landscapes from the Middle Weichselian or Saalian.
North of Fabjergkirkevej road there is a gently undulating moraine surface in which the difference in relief between the low hilltops and the floors of the depressions is about 5 m. See also site 18 Nørre Nissum - Fabjerg. It represents a typical example of a dead ice landscape developed when the Scandinavian Ice Sheet retreated from its maximum position. South of the road there is an outwash plain with a smooth surface that dips gently to the south (see also site 20 Klosterhede - Kronhede). The smooth surface is locally disturbed by incised valleys. The boundary between the undulating moraine surface and the flat outwash plain is expressed by a slight change in topography with a fall of about 5 m over a distance of about 500 m. The site is an example of the fact that the MSL is locally only weakly expressed in the landscape. Despite the different types of landscape on either side of the MSL, its detailed location can be difficult to appreciate in the field.
