The integrated municipality of Sietland essentially comprised the area of fresh water marshes and moors between the sea march around Otterndorf ("Hadelner Hochland") in the north and the peat lakes near Bad Bederkesa (Dahlemer, Halemer and Bederkesaer See) in the south. In the east, the border of the Samtgemeinde was largely formed by the Hadelner Canal .
The difficult drainage of the area takes place via the Emmelke , the Alte Aue and the Gösche, which unite to form the Medem at Ihlienworth , as well as a large number of landscaping weather , receiving waters and ditches. Without the Hadelner Canal, built in 1853, and the Otterndorf pumping station , there would be regular flooding due to the topographical location of up to two meters below sea level . Only in the west of the Samtgemeinde, in the Wannaer Geest and in Ahlen, is there a slightly elevated and sandy subsoil. The largely cultivated Ahlenmoor stretches in the triangle between Wanna, Ihlienworth and Steinau .
In the Middle Ages, the Hadelner Sietland (from Low German: siet = "low") was summarized under the name "Five Parishes ". (Up to the 14th century there was a chapel in Süderleda in addition to the churches in Wanna, Ihlienworth, Steinau and Odisheim .) Together with the Hadler Hochland ("Seven Parishes") and the residents of the town of Otterndorf , the Sietland formed one of the three " Stands " of the Hadler self-government (see Warningsacker ). From 1388 to around 1484, however, the Sietland was under the Bremen Bailiwick of Bederkesa . In place of the parish Süderleda was at this time Wester-Ihlienworth (next to Oster-Ihlienworth) as the fifth parish that had gained population through the medieval Holler colonization . Then the five parishes came back to the land of Hadeln.
For the time after that see also: History of the district of Cuxhaven .
