    More Than Just A Tobacco Town #2

    Canalside Location

    Favorite thing: Adinkerke sits scenically astride the Nieuport-Duinkerke canal, the 19 km waterway which connects Nieuport, in Belgium, and Dunkerke, in France and provides an inland waterway connecting the two ports (and of course their respective countries).

    As you can see from the pic the former towpath is now a cycle/footpath and is part of the local cycle network.

    As well as the main road bridge (pictured) there's also a footbridge (from where the pic was taken) traversing the canal, either of which which bring you from the railway station to the town centre.

    Sint Audomaruskerk

    Favorite thing: The suffix "kerke" in Flemish simply means "church". I've no idea about the "Adin" bit but the church here is one of the main places of worship in the area.

    Dedicated to Saint Audomarus (an especially devout 7th century Flemish bishop) the present-day church was built in 1856 and there has been a church on the site for over 900 years.

    I've only seen it from the outside, which is impressive enough, but if you visit this %L[ http://web.me.com/windekindvzw/ADINKERKE_-_DE_PANNE/ADINKERKE,_SINT-AUDOMARUSKERK.html]WEBSITE you'll find that is pretty magnicent inside too.

    So if churches are your thing then Adinkerke is certainly worth a visit for this one.
