Zone Canal - 4 km


Canal Area
From the railway tunnel in Roux to the lock in Marchienne : 4 km (2.48 mi.)
Along the canal, between the walkway in Roux and the lock in Marchienne, let’s walk briskly to the heavy cooling towers of the Amercoeur power plant. The Canal Area starts in Dampremy at the confluence of the Sambre and the canal, at the foot of high furnace n°4. Complete with locks, an inclined plane and huge boatlifts, the canal was the supply route for raw material and industrial output. Nowadays, the towpath is overlapped by slow path
RAVeL 1 Centre, which is connected to RAVeL 112a, RAVeL 3 and RAVeL L119 La Houillère (“ The Coal Mine ”). There are miles of walking and cycling paths connected together throughout Charleroi. Once you have reached the lock, leave the towpath and cross the bridge over the canal. On the right-hand side of the pavement, on the curve, turn
right and take the path with the stairs. When you reach the top of the path, turn right, cross the football field
and climb up to the heights.
