La Escaut does not have the name recognition of la Somme, but it does become an important river in northern France and western Belgium. As at the source of la Somme, there is a little park where the waters percolate out from under laid stone – for the most part, anyway – and you can sit and enjoy those waters as they begin their slow journey to the north. With a bottle of Orval in hand, the source of la Escaut is given that much more of a spiritual meaning.
