Geocache Description:


Version Française:

A l'heure actuelle ce lieu est surtout fréquenté l'été pour son camping , dans les temps anciens le lieu servait de lavoir pour les habitants de Grandcamp les Bains qui aprés avoir fait la tournée des maisons venait laver dans le Véret ( nom de la riviére qui se jette dans la mer aprés l'écluse).
Cette écluse  a permis aux allemands d'inonder les marais situé dans la plaine afin d'interdire le parachutage dans les prairies.
L'écluse est automatisé pour se fermer à marée haute , empêchant ainsi l'eau de mer de pénetrer dans les marais.

English Version:

At the present time this place is mostly used in the summer for its camping , in ancient times the place served as a wash-house for the citizen of Grandcamp les Bains who after having made the tour of the houses came to wash in Veret ( name of river that flows into the sea after the lock).
This lock allowed the Germans to flood the marshes in the plain to prevent parachuting in the meadows.
The lock is automated to close at high tide, thus preventing seawater from entering the marshes.
