I took this picture during a bike trip in the area.


History:
The Damse Vaart is about 14 km long and provides a connection via the water between the cities of Bruges and Sluis over Damme, Oostkerke, Hoeke and Lapscheure. The channel originates in the early 19th century. Napoleon undertook an attempt to connect Duinkerke and Breskens (at the Westerschelde) in 1810 through a canal. The existing Duinkerke-Veurne-Nieuwpoort-Plassendale-Bruges can be completed with a new Bruges-Damme-Sluis-Aardenburg-Breskens canal. Local workers and Spanish prisoners of war dig for the "Damse Vaart" or the "Napoleonic Channel". Portions of this new channel are laid in the beds of existing rivers
