Mysterious curve in the dyke that was blown up in WW2.

I am making a cruising guide for the Netherlands (book). While doing research I stumble upon all kinds of stories.
This story is about a curious mark on the chart. A dijkmagazijn and an 'omringdyke.' The polder was flooded at the end of WW2. My mother lived there with her parents and they had to be evacuated.

I hope you enjoy the youtube video:
