Built between the 12th and 16th centuries on the ruins of a former moustier.
The style is strange for this part of Picardy as it is between Romanesque and Gothic.
There were originally 6 bells but only the largest was kept during the revelution to call the locals to public meetings. The others were melted to make coins. The big then sound the call to arms in August 1914 only to be captured by the occupying forces and it was never seen again!
