Cauchois village

A rich medieval past surrounds this village with mystery. Nestled in the valley of the Scie, the ruins of a medieval castle still stand on the heights.

A medieval past

It was Gauthier Giffard, a companion of William the Conqueror at the battle of Hastings, who became the protector of this region in the 11th century. He had a priory and a feudal castle built there, which was to occupy a strategic place and make the town a first-rate economic location.

The fiefdom, which became a County, was later transformed into a Duchy linked to the Orleans family.

From the priory, only a few remains remain, as for the castle, its ruins are still visible today.

A commercial and craft activity

At Longueville-sur-Scie, there is also a market every Sunday morning!

The market is growing every year, making it a must-see place to shop for the next week!

In the village, there are also two iconic artisans, perhaps an echo of a once medieval activity, a knife maker and a potter!!

Pottery workshop is located in a very old house, called Maison Henry IV, while the knifemaking workshop is located across from the train station right next to the old boys’ school.
