Geocache Description:

Écluse de Cercy La Tour - Ouest

Le Canal Du Nivernais est un canal, courant tout le long du Département de la Nièvre, assurant une bonne navigation même quand les fleuves plus ou moins sauvages comme l'Arron ne sont pas navigable à cause de manque d'eau ou de trop grand courant.

Le terrain est très accidenté, et alors on a besoin de nombreux écluses pour niveller les différences d'altiude.

Ici nous proposons une cache à l'écluse à l'ouest de Cercy La Tour, ou le Canal coule dans l'Arron près de son barrage.

The Canal Du Nivernais is a major waterway running along the entire Départment de la Nièvre in order to assure a navigable waterway even when the more or less wild rivers like the Arron are not navigable either because of too little water or too strong currents.

The terrain is generally very hilly and therefore, lots of locks are needed to control the water levels.

This cache is located at the locks in the western part of Cercy La Tour, where the Canal leads to the river Arron close to the barrage.
