Not quite as fancy as the Source of the Somme or the Escault in neighboring France, still the Source of the Oise is marked alongside the road just north of the Auberge de Poteaupre. The actual source is hidden away in the woods east of the sign but it is close enough to declare it the ?source?. The Oise is one of the main rivers of Picardy picking up the Aisne River at Compiegne and substantially adding to the volume of the Seine River just west of Paris.
