La Haye De Routot

La Haye de Routot is a small village in the Brotonne regional natural park which is famous for its two, thousand year old, yew trees in the graveyard, and also its "feu de St Clair" - the annual bonfire on the 16th July. The fire is a tall geometrically stacked pile of wood with a cross on top.

The village also has a Museum of Sabotiers (clog-makers) in one of its lovely 17th century houses, with exhibitions of local crafts and trades, including the baking of bread in a traditional bread-oven.
