A unique operation took place along the Lekkanaal in 2017; the relocation of a number of objects from the Nieuwe Hollandse Waterlinie. They had to make way for the widening of the canal and the construction of the 3rd chamber of the Princess Beatrix lock. To preserve the special history of our national defense at this location, the objects have been placed back in the landscape as ‘found objects’.

To look back on this operation and on the history of this piece of the Waterlinie, the magazine Grof Geschut has been published. A nice reminder of this large and unique operation.
