A pleasant walk around Orp-Jauche. It takes in country lanes and crosses the fields of Walloon Brabant. And passes through four villages on the way.
I followed this route in early Spring this year. It starts in the village of Jauche and passes through Jandrain, Petit-Hallet and Orp-Jauche before returning to Jauche.
Starting (and finishing) point
If you are arriving by car, there’s plenty of free parking space along Rue de la Gare. If you plan to get to Jauche by public transport, it isn’t easy, particularly at the weekend. Drop me a line giving your departure point and timeframe and I’ll see if I can help find a solution.
Here’s a photo story of my Orp-Jauche walk. The route map is at the end of the post.
The walk then led back to my starting point alongside a wood that was just beginning to burst into life.And of course there was another church, this one in Orp-Jauche. Saint Martin seems to be very popular in this village too, which is also clearly a very religious village. It has not one, nor two, but three churches – and two of them are called Saint Martin’s!All that remained was the trek back to my starting point in Jauche under that gorgeous blue sky. Plenty of time for thankful reflection on how good it is to be alive and healthy and able to enjoy the scenery, the fresh air, the peace, and the beauty of nature.
All in all, this is a very pleasant walk. Here’s an overview map of my walk:
