By car, at the heart of the Evoissons valley

Want to breathe fresh air? We’ll take you on a tour of the Evoissons valley. The walk starts at Poix-de-Picardie. This is a village nestled in green landscape. The beautiful 16th-century, flamboyant style Saint-Denis church features sculpted keystones. Another curious feature of the landscape is the Poix viaduct (1866), which measures 246 m long. It is entirely made of bricks. It crosses the Fay valley, which is 33 m deep.

Direction Blangy-sous-Poix. This village has a charming Romanesque church with a polygonal bell tower dating from the early 12th century. Famechon is home to a flamboyant-style church made of local stone. On the right, a stone path leads to a shaded picnic area. The perfect opportunity for a break. Fishers can delight in their passion here. The commune of Bergicourt is stepped up on the hillside. Take a walk by the water.

Guizancourt is a charming little village famous for its stone. Observe the wild orchids with their little flowers bearing purple veins. But be careful, this is a protected species. Next to the old watchtower, a little bridge crosses the Evoissons river. On the village square, a linden tree with a circumference of 5.50 m takes pride of place.

Take a detour via Méreaucourt, one of the smallest villages in the Somme with just 15 inhabitants. Middle-age vestiges survive in a farm, on the spot of a former priory of the knights of the Maltese Order. At the foot of the old motte-and-bailey castle of Agnières, the church has a choir dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. Admire the fine Picard-style houses.

A brick and stone dwelling is what remains of the Château of Souplicourt. In Sainte-Segrée, take a bucolic stroll through the woods alongside the castle’s garden. There is a curious feature as you leave La Chapelle-sous-Poix: the church is made of flint. Lastly, go back to Poix-de-Picardie.
