The western slopes, the Hem valley

This area of dry valleys, which partly overlooks the marshes, is also the home of windmills, of which Moringhem and Norbécourt still have the two finest examples. Like the windmills, the area also boasts some fine white limestone architecture: farmhouses, the churches of Saint-Léger and Saint-Gilles in Mentques with their machicolations, and Saint-Maxime in Difques with its Romanesque tower. The calvary in Nort-Leulinghem, dating from 1780 and listed as a Historic Monument, is one of the most remarkable in the region. Added to this is a fragile earthen heritage, with ancient mottes castrales that were the first castles, as in Bayenghem-les-Eperlecques and Mentques. The northern part of the region is crossed by the Hem, a river with clear, lively waters. At the ford in Zouafques, it crosses the Leulène, the ancient road leading down from England to Rome. It flows through Tournehem, an ancient medieval fortified town, with its medieval gateway, square and water mill. The river also flows through the hamlet of Guémy, where time seems to have stood still… At the top of the hill, the ancient chapel, set in a protected natural site, opens onto one of the most beautiful panoramas in northern France. The whole of the Aa delta and the Opal Coast from Calais to Dunkerque can be seen at a glance.

Les fontinettes boat elevator

Les fontinettes boat lift In the 1880s, it was decided to build a hydraulic lift. The structure consisted of three brick towers guiding 2 mobile metal sluices, driven by 2m-diameter pistons. A gantry at the upstream and downstream ends allows the gates to be operated for the entry and exit of barges (Freycinet 38.5 x 5 m type). The locks are sealed by an air-filled rubber bag. At the top, two canal bridges cross the railway line. The manoeuvre, controlled from the cabin at the top of the central tower, required 6 men and only 20 minutes. With the introduction of the European gauge, the lift, which had become too small, ceased to operate in 1967. A unique work of art in France, it was listed in 2014 and will be restored shortly. Adults: €4; Children (aged 5-11): €2.50 21 rue Denis Papin 62510 Arques 03 21 88 59 00
