The meander of the Seine around Venables is a rich site historically.

In the village a feudal motte probably built 1000 years ago. A church whose building started during the XI ème century. A pond close to the Seine allows pleasant walks.




















History: 1000 years ago, 3 lords of current village Gilbert de Venables, Guillaume and Hugues De La Mare participated to the conquest of England by William the Conqueror. Hugues died at Hastings battle. Gilbert got lands in Cheshire close to Chester. Then, the name of Venables spread throughout the world with latter English conquests.

Dominique and Francis will be happy to show the still visible vestiges of this long story to  “Venables” who are coming.
