The Dive du Nord is one of the canals created in France to supply cities with agricultural products from the countryside, , or even to trade with foreign countries. The Dive canal network, which dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries, is 28 kilometers long between Vienne and Deux-Sèvres. Its aim was to transport cereals and wine to the Loire, via Thouet. Its banks, with their rich riparian forest, are places for walks and a true paradise for insects.

On the cartel

Banks of the Dive, in Pas-de-Jeu, a league from Oiron. The grass bows its head, forming a bishop's crozier, to accommodate a garden spider and its web. The destinies of animal and plant are united in a fragile communion with mystical overtones.
