De Binnendieze: 800 jaar geschiedenis, 25 jaar restauratie (The Binnendieze: 800 years of history)

£11.99

Product description

Please note: The text of this book is in Dutch.

Tussen het domein Orthen en  de heerlijkheid Vught, bij de samenkomst van Aa en Dommel, vestigden zich op het einde van de 12e eeuw vrije kooplieden.  Gewoonlijk ontwikkelden steden zich uit een kleine nederzetting of in de directe nabijheid van burchten of kloosters.  Hier ontstond echter - op een relatief hoog gelegen dekzandrug - een nieuwe stad.  Dor de snelle uitbreiding van de oude stad kwamen kilometers natuurlijke watergangen binnen de de vesting te liggen.  Dit stelsel van waterlopen - genaamd de Binnendieze - verbond de stad via de Dieze met de grote rivieren, waardoor een levendige handel ontstond.  Toen door de ontwikkeling van wegen het vervoer over water afnam, verloor de Binnendieze haar econmische betekenis en bleef de functie van rioolafvoer over.  

Dit boek beschrijft het ontstaan, gebruik, verval en de restauratie van dit unieke, in een Middeleeuwse stad gelegen, stelsel van waterlopen en geeft uitvoerig verslag van het waterbouwkundig herstel.

Na de restauratie van de gemetselde muren, bruggen en overkluizingen kwam direct het herstel van de bebouwing in de directe omgeving op gang.  Een van de argumenten van hen die detijds de Binnendieze wilden dempen was dat aan bijna de gehele Binnendieze geen stedebouwkundige waarde kon worden togekend.  Na 25 jaar restauratie zal dit argument niemand meer aanspreken.


At the end of the 12th century, free merchants settled between the domain Orthen and the manor of Vught, at the meeting of Aa and Dommel. Usually cities developed from a small settlement or in the immediate vicinity of castles or monasteries. Here, however, a new city arose - on a relatively high lying sand ridge. With the rapid expansion of the old city, miles of natural waterways came within the fortress. This system of waterways - called the Binnendieze - connected the city via the Dieze to the major rivers, creating a lively trade. When water transport declined due to the development of roads, the Binnendieze lost its economic significance and the function of sewage drainage remained. 

This book describes the origin, use, decline and restoration of this unique system of waterways located in a medieval city and provides an extensive account of the hydraulic restoration.

After the restoration of the masonry walls, bridges and enclosures, the restoration of the buildings in the immediate vicinity started immediately. One of the arguments of those who wanted to suppress the Binnendieze at the time was that almost all of the Binnendieze could not be given any urban design value. After 25 years of restoration, this argument will no longer appeal to anyone.

The book has its dust jacket which is intact.  The book is in excellent condition throughout.
