The Waterlinie and it's fortresses
Historic and personal notes

Dan Armstrong put me in contact with one of his colleagues, Joost Hageman. He wrote me the following note about abandoned buildings in general and about the Waterlinie-fortresses. It gives good historic information and some tips how to get inside in a subtle manner (using a crowbar and a tractor ... ).

Interesting story and must say that the phenomenon reminds me of illegal 'incursions' into a structure that once belonged to the "Waterlinie", near Leerdam. I was 15 or 16 back then.
