Bike Touring Highlight
Burgh lock was created around a lock that drained excess rainwater from the Burgh and Westland polder into the Eastern Scheldt. A harbor and some fishing were created at that lock. Around 1865 the harbor was improved, enlarged and a hamlet was created. The 1953 flood disaster also struck here with dyke breaches and casualties. Ten inhabitants drowned.
