Warning: Unsecured hours
Discover the heritage of Arques and the ponds along the Varenne.
Starting from the town of Arques-la-Bataille, ramblers pass below the ruins of the mediaeval fortress, cross through the woods and walk along the ponds by way of the village of Martigny, before finally following the Avenue Verte, a greenway reserved for non-motorized traffic.

You can see the old Baudelot factory which once ran on the driving force of the river. It belonged to a textile mill built in the 10th or 11th century, which later went on to become a woodworking shop. After the footbridge, continue down Impasse Baudelot. Turn left at the first intersection and climb the stairs.
A Château d’Arques
C Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption Church
The nave and the choir, two very different spaces, are separated by a rood screen made of white stone with three doors of equal size framed by Corinthian columns holding up the entablature and a solid railing forming the attic. The railing bar features a simple projection by the nave, forming the choir loft.
