Long's lock house
The lock keeper house was originally the lock keeper's home. Located along the Somme Canal, it is a place intended for the general public, and offers guided tours, nature outings.
The 18th century castle
The charming stone and pink brick castle, an 18th century madness, was the work of the best architects of the time, notably Boffrano, who built the Hôtel Soubise in Paris. The Mansart roof gives it all its charm. The 20 hectare park descends from terraced landings to the river. The magnificent listed greenhouses almost have stones in the water.
