The Netherlands Eenigenburg.
The Westfriese Omringdijk (West-Frisian Circular Dyke) is a dyke system that protected the region of Westflinge, part of the historical region of West-Frisia.
The cultivation of peat bogs and moors as of 1000 BC led to subsidence, which necessitated the building of dykes. The Westfriese Omringdijk was formed by connecting a large number of smaller dykes. This was completed by 1250 AD, just in time for the area to be spared annihilation in the St. Lucia's flood of 1287. The total dyke length is about 126 km, protecting an area of about 800 km2. It connects the cities of Enkhuizen, Hoorn, Alkmaar, Schagen, Medemblik and then back to Enkhuizen.
No sea to be seen here, nowadays. Large parts of the province North-Holland are polders, built at the bottom of lakes from which the water has first been drained.

The Netherlands Heemskerk.
View on the secondary battery of Fort Veldhuis, one of the 42 forts of the Defence Line of Amsterdam. The former circular permanent defence construction around the capital of The Netherlands. Like a hermetically sealed circle, this would be the last resistance in the defence of the country. The Defence Line was prepared for a siege of about six months. The fort was built in 1893 and is located near Heemskerk. Nowadays it houses the Aircraft Recovery Group 1940- 1945, a voluntary operated foundation and since decades investigating all matters concerning the airwar over Holland during the second worldwar.
