Monument protected floodgate
I had a nomination rejected which I thought should be 5*.
It is a floodgate which was build in 1822. The floodgate made it possible that ships could reach the next city which they could not reach before.
Today the floogate is not in use anymore because of building of canals im tgat area ships do not use river anymore.
Butvthe floodgate is still there allthough nature is tajingback the place. Butvit isbstill clearly visible. 30 years ago the floodgate was put under monument protection to remember that in the past the river was used by ships.
I thought that this fits the criteria of an interesting place with a cool story. I put a lot of effort in the nomination and even provided links with additional information. But it was still rejected.
