Battles of Artois : Ablain Saint Nazaire. The ruins of the church are surrounded by the village, completely rebuilt after the war. Masterpiece of Flamboyant Gothic, the  church was built in the sixteenth century by Lord Charles de Bourbon-Carency, anxious to show his gratitude to Saint Nazaire who had contributed to the healing of her daughter. Ablain occupies a strategic position at the foot of the plateau of Notre-Dame de Lorette. In October 1914, the Germans seize it. French troops will constantly reclaim the spur of Notre Dame de Lorette, which is, with Vimy ridge, dominates, from one side Arras, the first town of Artois and the other side Lens and its coal mines. In the background, the crest of the hill of Notre Dame de Lorette, where can be seen the top of the lantern tower.
