Aus Wikipedia. Nicht dargestellt. Auszug: The Canal de Nantes a
Brest is a French canal which links the two cities of Nantes and
Brest through inland Brittany. It was built during the 19th century
and its total length is 385 km with 238 locks from coast to coast.
The western portion of the canal is also known as Branche
Finisterienne. The original idea of such a canal is dated from the
16th century but it's only when Brest was blockaded by the English
fleet that Napoleon I of France decided to build this canal to
assure a safe inland link between the two largest military ports of
the French Atlantic front. Building started in 1811, and Napoleon
III of France presided over the canal's opening in 1858. In 1923
the route of the canal was broken by the Guerledan dam. Navigation
is no longer possible between Mael-Carhaix and Pontivy. The lake
flooded the uppermost portion of the canal for some 8 km along with
17 locks. The canal utilizes the following rivers, west to east:
