This community, situated on the edge of the Saint-Omer area, is the result of two villages being joined together, namely Mentque and Nortbécourt. Therefore, the village has kept its two churches: in the Mentque church the tower dates from the 13th century, the choir stalls from the 16th century and the nave from the 18th century. The Nortbécourt church dates from Roman times with its hooked bell-tower.
You can take lovely walks in the area, to reach the place called La Ronville, especially starting from the Ferme du Nortbert, in the Rue Wattré, well-known for its production of high-quality rapeseed oil. You can visit the oil production for free, and you will discover a variety of products made with this oil.
Before you leave this area, find and discover the mills of Inglinghem and Lebriez, on the heights of Nortbécourt.
