Ramillies Sunken Road
Sunken roads, of the type that hid troop movements and become killing channels during the Battle of Ramillies in 1706, are still to be seen. This one is west of the village, whose church steeple is visible in the distance.
Ramillies – Offus Farm
Ferme Seny is one of the many ancient farmsteads in the area around Ramillies. Its stout walls could have offered protection to French troops from the Duke of Marlborough’s attacking forces.
This farm was used by the Duke of Marlborough’s Dutch and Austrian troops as a hospital during the Battle of Malplaquet in 1709. Its arched entryway and slotted windows remain much as they were 300 hundred years ago.
