Additional information:

The entrance towards the locks (locally known as Arkervaartsluis) for a passage into Nijkerk has at least one light since 1850 and two lights from 1870 or so. The two lights were first placed on one, then on both pier heads. From the 1970s the environment of the entrance gradually changed, but up until today the pier heads are still there with only a very slight modification (broader entrance). And with modern lights of course.
The former fishing fleet of Nijkerk can be recognized by NK as vessel registration.
