Le Ronvau

This term suggests a ‘round valley’. It is a former sand quarry, used after World War 2. A junction on the Incourt-Courcelles byway along the valley meant sand could be loaded directly onto wagons. This is a municipal property and in 1970 the municipality opened a sports complex here named after André Docquier who was mayor of Chaumont-Gistoux from 1970 to 2000 and passed away in 2003.

The federal nature reserve of Ry du Pré Delcourt

This nature reserve includes some of the old ‘Riga’ lakes. It is not accessible to the public as it is dangerous due to a family of beavers deciding to set up home there. The beavers’ presence has significantly altered the original ecosystems. The meadow that can be seen from Rue du Pont des Brebis has turned into a marsh. It is possible to visit the site accompanied by a local forestry officer or authorised nature guide.

This former mill, also known as ‘Debienne’ was sometimes used as an oil mill and sometimes for flour. It was built in 1836-1837 by Marc Valériane, a former owner of the current town hall. The mill’s iron mechanism has been preserved.
