Road Cycling Highlight
The Derde Sas in Grobbendonk is an old and dilapidated lock from the 19th century, when the Nete (channeled in 1843) was still heavily used by sand and iron ore ships. The lock is located on a dead side arm of the Kleine Nete. The lock used to be located on the Nete, but over time the course of the Nete was shifted and the lock became obsolete. This lock was one of the four locks on the Kleine Nete between Lier and Grobbendonk. Until recently, Lia Timmermans, daughter of writer Felix Timmermans, stayed in the 'Sashuis', now restored as a country residence.
