Fort Wierickerschans

The elaborate defence system, the Oude Hollandse Waterlinie (Old Dutch Waterline), was built to defend Holland in the 17th century. In 1673, Governor William III commissioned the reconstruction of the redoubt at Nieuwerbrug into a highly defensible redoubt, Fort Wierickerschans.
