Le Préseau (hamlet)

In former times, when Landrecian people wanted to go to the Helpe Mineure river in the north-east, they had to walk through the fields. A road was finally built and some farms settled there : Le Préseau hamlet was born. (this name means something like "passage from the fields to the water").

On the picture you can also see a little blue-stone chapel : there are 23 of them in Landrecies, and more than 450 in the whole Avesnois region. Their shapes and the inscriptions on them are very diverse, and so they are very interesting historical items.
