Vieille Sambre ("Old Sambre River")

The Old Sambre river is all that remains of the former course of the Sambre river, before it was canalized. It is only 400 or 500 metres long, because it has its source in the canal and then flows again into it downstream. Therefore it's a kind of loop with the current Sambre river. The Old Sambre river may be tiny, but to have a walk along its beautifully green banks in fine weather is always a refreshing experience.
