Excursion 27 June 2009 11.30 – 23.00
From Quarry to Castle
A well-preserved territory near Paris
Saturday, June 27th
Localization: Chantilly, 30 km away from Beauvais
Duration: 6 hours
Extract from The Independent:
“The southern Oise, around Saint-Maximin and Chantilly, has applied to the French state to become the first
place to be granted a building stone Appellation Contr‡lˆe – a badge of official regional excellence – like
that given to a wine or a cheese. The southern Oise is also developing a tourist heritage trail to encourage
visitors to explore the rich history of the ancient underground quarries in the area, some of which date back
to the Roman period.
Until the seventeenth century, Paris was constructed from stone excavated through tunnelling underground
just outside the city itself. The old quarries were later strengthened and turned into the catacombs that
survive under large parts of Paris to this day. In the second part of the seventeenth century, Louis XIV's
chief minister, Jean-Baptiste Colbert, created a commission to decide which stone would best replace the
local building material. The commission identified the stone from the southern part of the Oise –
conveniently linked to Paris by river – as an almost perfect match for the city's existing monuments, such as
the Cathˆdrale.
However, the quarries of Saint-Maximin can authentically claim to be the birthplace of the largely stone-built
Paris that we know today. The southern Oise provided 90 per cent of the stone for the Haussmann era
(post-1860) avenues and streets which give the French capital its sweeping and uniform style (and its
elusive colouring, ranging from shining white to nicotine yellow).”
We will picnic at St Maximin Quarries.
We will discover the development of a Major Geological Site.
We will see how quarries closed down were converted.
We will continue with the castle visit, Ch‰teau de Chantilly, to understand how local materials were used to
build our architectural heritage.
Then, we will come back to Beauvais city for the Medieval Feast.
