  • Bethune to English time

    On foot: Duration: 2h30 - Distance: 4.1 km

    Located about fifteen kilometers from the front, Bethune was, throughout the First World War, an "English town", where flocks of men on leave from numerous regiments stayed. In the hospitals installed in the requisitioned colleges, efforts were made to treat the wounded brought back from the front. Exposed punctually to the bombing, Béthune was a victim in 1918, of an operation of methodical destruction of its downtown area, when the German offensive was launched on the Lys, the 9th April failed; only the belfry built in the 14th century resisted the "storm of steel" ... The town benefited from an eclectic reconstruction in the 1920s; its Grand-Place, with its high street houses, is now a beautiful urban setting.

    A circuit for a family walk very popular with outdoor enthusiasts in the countryside.

    The circuit totals 13 km in the version initiated by its creators.

    The friends, clubs, hikers ... usually meet in front of the town hall of Artres and head towards Famars by the D400 departmental, then by the rue Bermerain ... ..In Famars they go down la "cavee" cross the Rhonelle by the bridge of tranquility then take the path to the hamlet of Sameon which brings them back to Artres.
