- MAPS: Google Maps
March 3rd 1745. A pale dawn is breaking. The mist is lifting from the nearby Brook of Somme. We are in a field, near an immense oak, next to the ancient road to Sedan. In a few moments Mr Delbrouck will be hanged from the top of the tree. He was one of the most fearsome bandits in the Ardennes, together with Géna and Magonette. Delbrouck has murdered the chaplain of Barvaux. Here, at the foot of the "Gibet-Oak" he will have to pay for his sins. Come walking or riding your bike in this unknown region, and maybe the ghost of this terrible bandit will pay you a visit.
From Namur or Brussels, take the N4 to Arlon. At the exit Pessoux (32km after Namur), take the RN929 on your left in the direction of Mean. After 10,5 km you will get to Failon. Park your car near the church, upon entering the village.
