Westerschelde

Henk and Richard .... do we agree that 'Westerschelde' is from Terneuzen downstream, and anything above Terneuzen (like Walsoorden) is under the Netherlands general section?
Or should this section be renamed to cover the whole of the Schelde? That might be better?

No, The Westerschelde starts in Antwerpen at the Dutch border and ends near Zeebrugge. Before Antwerpen it is called river Schelde and after Zeebrugge it is called Noordzee (North Sea). So Westerschelde is the sea-arm up river till te border and the river Schelde ends there!

Well Scheldt is the English name for Schelde. Meaning the same river starting in France ending just after Antwerpen at the Dutch border where she flows into the Westerschelde and that is a sea arm, not a river. Cause confusion, I can understand that because the last part of it near Bath is very narrow!! Looks like a river. ;)
