One week ago came here a lot people, thousands during the festivity along this canal.
This for conservation of this canal.
A lot politicians would this canal completely changed but then is these nature and trees totally disappeared of this canal as now.

From just upstream of Deinze down the channel is independent of the Lys to the north, through the center of Nevele, for the Ghent-Bruges (Brugsevaart) to run.
This channel is much older than the Schipdonk Channel and because the dirty water of the Schipdonk Channel is not in the Ghent-Bruges would have been a floodgate and a siphon constructed so that the water from the diversion channel under the other could walk through.
The "Good Ship of Donck" in the vicinity of the crossing would be the channel name.From the Ghent-Bruges Canal runs along Schipdonk Zomergem downtown, just east of some sand ridges that banks provide for slightly higher, up to the district stopped Zomergem Pond.
From here the canal is located in the bed of the Lady, a much older channel, until Moerkerke, a district of Damme.
The last 20 km of the sea are at Schipdonk Channel and the Leopold Canal in parallel, only separated by a dike.
On this trajectory crosses the parallel channels to Rotterdam in the Siphon canal, not far from Oostkerke.
They were led by the Damme canal, so that the latter was possible shipping. In 1940 traps were destroyed.
The channel crossing is now a picturesque group, partly because of the tall trees along all three channels.

I hope you like it.
