Long Description:
When you go from the Nedereindseweg into the Ringkade you go acroos a concrete bridge over a waterway. To the left (westside) of the bridge is a sluice gate. It can be operated on the southern end by turning a wheel. I couldn't find anything about this gate but this waterway is at the corner of an old water association organisation (Waterschap Heycop). It could be used to control the water level of the area. I don't know how old the sluice gate is. The gate door is missing.
