There is little to experience in Beesd where you will start. It will only be fun at the Lingedijk. You will pass the ribbon village of Rumpt and the town of Gellicum. They look beautiful along the dike. Keep in mind that they are all very old places, which are mentioned before the Middle Ages. De Linge was then important as a transport river to the hinterland. You will get to the area where the Linge is going to turn south and that is precisely the area where the fortress builders play a role in the construction of the New Dutch Water Line. The line served as a replacement for the Oude Hollandse Waterlinie, which runs right through the green heart. The Nieuwe also protected the city of Utrecht and runs from Naarden via Muiden, Utrecht, Culemberg and Leerdam to Gorinchem. It was a huge operation in which many fortifications were needed to not only defend the passageways, but also the locks that had to be opened during use to flood everything. The farmers were not happy with it. The Line was used only a few times in the Second World War. Due to all kinds of advancing technical developments, the construction was constantly adjusted. The most famous works are the forts around Muiden and Utrecht, the Diefdijk and Fort Asperen. You will visit Fort Asperen. It is a huge fort that had to defend the locks at Asperen. You can wander around in the summer, while the bats have to sleep in the winter. When you get to Leerdam, you come to the end of the Diefdijk. This dike has been around since the 13th century and was primarily intended to protect the Dutch against the delta water from the east. De Linge was not always a friendly river. By raising the dike, people were able to achieve a 4 km wide line between Culemborg and Leerdam, while the dike itself offered extra protection. The area around Asperen also has a dead Lingearm, which leads past Acquoy. It is also another ancient village that is dominated by its crooked church tower. With its 3.6 degrees slope, it is only 0.2 degrees less skewed than its famous brother in Pisa. During the construction in the 15th century, the whole thing started to subside.
