“Between the town of Conty and Loeuilly, at the end of a grand avenue, are the remains, in brick and stone, of the old château of Wailly. It is easily accesible from the Coulée Verte, if you want to visit by bicycle. Building began about 1640 and continued to 1690. Built in Louis XIII style, in a semi-circular design. Around 1785, a new building was constructed next to the ruins of the old one. Most of the buildings were destroyed during the French Revolution. Only one 60 m long wing, Louis XIV dependencies and Louis XVI amphitheatre still survive. During most of WWII it served as a military barracks for approximately 150 German troops. In September 1944, General Bernard Montgomery established his general headquarters here for serveral days. Visit of grounds and chapel are possible between 1 July and 10 August from noon to 6 pm.”
