The Limit Pole or Half Hour Pole
A limit pole has stood on the Beusichemsedijk for centuries to mark the border between the county of Culemborg and Buren. At the end of 1993, according to local tradition, this pole was taken home as a souvenir by someone from abroad. A replica was installed in June 2001. The Limit Pole is popularly known as the Half Hour Pole. From this point it was a half hour walk to Culemborg and Beusichem.
