A story of water, stones and iron...

The Iton River was diverted by the Dukes of Normandy and King of England William the Conqueror and Henry I Beauclerc to supply their fortresses at Breteuil and Verneuil. Go down along the river to discover this site of the watershed called "Le Becquet", classified as a historical monument in 2002.
