Canal d'Entreroche

It is a vestige of a waterway, between the plain of the Orbe and Eclepens-Gare. Launched in the 16th century, the canal was a very ambitious project; unfortunately it was never completed.

The canal of Entreroches allowed you to cross the Mormont until Cossonay. There remained 13 kilometres and the installation of many locks to reach Lake Geneva.
The Canal of Entreroches in Eclépens, a navigable waterway connecting the Mediterranean to the North Sea, was built between 1638 and 1648. Located in the very centre of Europe, it was designed to link Lake Neuchâtel to Lake Geneva. This canal was used for commercial navigation between Cossonay and Yverdon until 1829. Close to the village of Eclépens, impressive remains of the canal as well as the house of the ferryman remain.
