Map of the Southern section of the canal
This is the southern part of the Burgundy Canal, the water flows south-east and downstream from Pouilly en Auxois, through Dijon, to the river Saône. The river Ouche flows through the market town of Bligny sur Ouche and joins the canal at a very small village called Pont d'Ouche. The Ouche is used to increase the supply of water to the canal.
The canal empties into the river Saone at Saint Jean de Losne, whilst the river Ouche joins the river Saone a few miles to the north.
The Saône river flows south and joins the river Rhone in the center of the city of Lyon.
You will notice some village names of some important wines such as Beaune, Gevrey Chamberting and Nuits Saint Georges.
