The history of our name

Our name Rollepaal originates from the industrial area with the same name, where Rollepaal is located. Originally a Rollepaal or Rolpaal is named after a pole that was used for the pulling of boats in the inland navigation. A person or horse pulled the boat with a rope, to lead it savely through the canals. The poles were located at spots were the canal made a turn. By keeping the rope strained around the pole, the boat was able to make the turn without bumping into the quay.
