The Wiericke canals are located in the polder east of the city of Gouda.
In the pictures you see the Enkele (=single) Wiericke.
The Dubbele (double) Wiericke is larger and runs parallel to the first one 3/4 of a mile eastward .
The Wiericke canals connect the rivers Hollandsche IJssel and Oude Rijn the water level being about 4m above the polder level.
The polder itself is about -1,6m under sealevel.
So George W. if you read this sign Kyoto please.
This is the landscape that I like, water, grass willows and cows.
Enjoy the polder pictures.
