Geography

Labroye is situated in a hillside environment in the valley of the river Authie, which flows through the village. A mixture of woodland and farms, the village has many examples of typical Picardie houses, built in the traditional style with wattle and daub, covered in tar and then whitewashed. The village is at the crossroads of two départemental routes. One, north-south going from Hesdin to Abbeville, the D928 and the other going east-west to Auxi-le-Château and on to Berck, the D119.

Economy

Agricultural activity is confined to the raising of cattle for milk and beef, and pig farming.

Places of interest

  • The church, solid and reinforced, was once accompanied by a castle, which gave refuge to Philippe VI following the battle of Crecy that took place some kilometres to the south on August 26, 1346.
  • A campground, a restaurant, and some guest rooms are available for tourist leisure activities: hunting, fishing, and walking.
