Long Description:
In 1308 werd het onderhoud en herstel van de IJsseldijk georganiseerd. De hoeven die langs de dijk stonden moesten elk een stuk dijk onderhouden dat over hun land liep. Dit werd ‘verhoefslaging’ genoemd. De afmeting van het stuk dijk waar men verantwoordelijk voor was (de ‘hoefslag’), was in verhouding met de grootte van het grondgebied van de boerderij.

In 1760 zijn de houten palen vervangen door stenen exemplaren maar of de vier palen langs de IJssel tussen Zwolle en Kampen zo oud zijn is niet bekend. Op de paal is naast het volgnummer ook de lengte van de hoefslag aangegeven.

Dijkpaal 87. De lengte van de hoefslag was 127 roede, 8 voet en 1 duim. Bovendien staat er nog een M, een S en een A in de paal gegraveerd.


In 1308, the maintenance and restoration of the IJsseldijk was organized. Each farm that stood along the dike had to maintain a piece of dike that ran over their lands. This was called 'verhoefslaging' The size of the dike where the farm was responsible for, was commensurate with the size of the territory of the farm.

In 1760 the wooden poles were replaced by stone ones, but whether the four poles along the IJssel between Zwolle and Kampen are so old is not known. On the pole you can find a serial number and it also indicates the length of the territory.

Dike Pole 87. The length of the territory was 127 rod, 8 feet and 1 inch. Furthermore, there is an M, S and A engraved in this pole.
