    At the beginning of the 15th century, the city of Kleve sought direct access to the Rhine. For this purpose, she expanded the receiving water Spoygraben to a 4 km long shipping channel. In 1658 the now dilapidated canal was restored and made accessible to Brienen with a lock. In 1809 the canal and the lock were destroyed by a powerful flood with ice.de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schifffahrtsweg_Rhein-Kleve

    Good old Spoy. Once an important trade route and connection to Kleve. Today, I'm a little bitchy, because she is no longer "ransacked" by the lock
