Sunken bridge

Bridge 1Bridge 2Bridge 3

A series of moats and fortresses were built over the West Brabant Water Line region of the Netherlands during the 17th century in order to provide protection from invasion by France and Spain. Fort de Roovere was surrounded with a shallow moat that was too deep to march across, and too shallow for boats. In turn the earthen fort had remained protected –until now.

The bridge and its components have been made from sustainable hardwood that has also been treated with a non-toxic coating protecting it from fungal decay and increasing its durability… Just a little wave and you won’t be so amazed anymore! Very nice and beautiful concept still.
