Photographer's Note

You see the The Hoofdvaart, a canal that runs the length of the Haarlemmermeer-polder, from north-northeast to south-southwest.

In the north, the Hoofdvaart begins at the pumping-station "Lynden" in Lijnden at the Ringvaart ( ring canal around the Haarlemmermeer-polder ), in the south this happens at the pumping-station "Leeghwater" in Buitenkaag.

These pumping-stations pump the water from the canal into the Ringvaart, in order to keep the polder dry.

From north to south the canal runs through the villages Lijnden, Hoofddorp, Nieuw-Vennep ( where I live ), Abbenes and Buitenkaag.

The Hoofdvaart runs over a length of 20 km straight through the polder, only a small nod to Abbenes is in.

When you're still hungry for some more history of the Haarlemmermeer, please go back in my portfolio and copy these two links :
