The route to Thérouanne is easy and uses roads to take a more direct route to follow the ancient Le Leulene Roman Road which sadly is submerged beneath the modern roadways.





Walk Description :


1 - From the Abbey Notre Dame in Wisques continue down Rue de la Fontaine to the crossroads and turn right (this road is very busy, be careful). Turn left down the road - direction Esquerdes.
