Introduction: Although the city is located 19 miles inland, Ghent can rightfully call itself a sea port. The digging of the Ghent-Terneuzen canal (1823–1827) to link the city to the North Sea, and the construction of enormous textile factories around the mediaeval city centre, turned Ghent into the most important industrial city in Flanders in the 2nd half of the 19th century: the Manchester of the continent.
