Origin of our name

Our name Rollepaal originates from the industrial estate of the same name, where Rollepaal is located. Originally a rollepaal or rolpaal (literally ‘roll post’) was a stationary post that was used for boats being pulled in inland navigation. A person or horse towed the boat with a rope to guide it safely along the canals. These posts were located at spots where the canal made a turn. By keeping the rope strained around the post, the boat was able to make the turn without bumping into the side of the towpath.


Here is a chronology of significant events and milestones in Rollepaal's history.
