Amiens, Somme
Amiens is a town in Northern France about 75 miles north of Paris through which many of us
will have passed on our way from the Channel ports to the French capital. It has a large 13th
Century Gothic cathedral, whilst the surrounding area is known for its hortillonnages, which are
gardens on small islands in the marshland along the Somme.
