The Peat

Means of heating of the inhabitants and true gold mine.

Long, located in the valley of the Sum, drew its fortune from the extraction of the peat.

The schools, the bridges, the town hall, the church, the station and the hydroelectric power station were built thanks to the sale of peat cuttings?

Address: On the river Somme
