    Goede wandeling, leuk parcours. De begeleidende tekst is alleen in het Frans beschikbaar, dat was jammer. Maar goed te doen.

Description

A- | A+

This route takes you in the footsteps of Antoine-Joseph Moneuse, the famous bandit and Captain of the Chauffeurs du Nord.

During this walk, you’ll relive this dark day of 22 November 1795. At that date, one of the most bloody events to have hit our region took place: the Houlette massacre.

Moneuse was soon suspected of being the perpetrator of this heinous crime that killed nine people. But the truth is never simple ...

Through the fields and paths of Roisin and Meaurain and the French village of La Flamangrie, you’ll have to cross the Franco-Belgian border several times where our region was torn between Austria and France, recalling a troubled period of history.

Have a good walk and watch out... Bandits are about.
