Site description
The site is located to the north-east of the city of Gorinchem and consists of the channel of the River Linge, its narrow flood-plain and excavations along the Nieuwe Zuider Lingedijk dyke, as well as associated wet meadows, marshland and swampy woodland. This site, together with site 078, formed part of a single, larger site (former site NL042) in the previous pan-European IBA inventory (Grimmett and Jones 1989).
