Port (canal latéral à la Loire), French Heritage monument to Marseille les aubigny

The port of Marseilles-les-Aubigny, located at the point of meeting of the Loire lateral canal and the canal de Berry was the place of many transshipments between the large ships of the canal lateral to the Loire and the small embarcationsdu canal de Berry and vice versa. This is the main reason for this port area had been improperly assessed at the time of his digging. In 1842, engineer Ryan believes that this port should accommodate 200 boats of the canal de Berry and 50 the side channel and measuring 750 m x 50 m (it is then 100 x 35 m). Currently the port has length de580 m and a width of 47 m. on the port, two wedges of refit contiguous can each accommodate a 38 m long boat. The two vertical walls (41 x 7.8 m) rectangular basins are closed by beams. At the time of the opening of the canal lateral to the Loire (1838), the port of Marseilles-les-Aubigny is much too small. The boats that doiventnecessairement Park at this location for the transhipment of goods Overstock sometimes reach a length of 2 km. The port is therefore enlarged in 1843, 1858 and 1864. In 1897, the port of Marseilles-les-Aubigny is the fourth large lateral canal port after Beffes, Fourchambault and Nevers by importance of tonnage, and sees transit 36 500 tons of goods. The two wedges of refit are built in 1864, then extended in 1899-1900.
