One of the city's original monuments, considered the most beautiful religious building in the region.

In the 1880s, it was decided to build a hydraulic lift. The structure is composed of three brick towers guiding two mobile metal locks, driven by 2m diameter pistons. A gantry at the upstream and downstream ends allows the gates to be operated for the entry and exit of barges (Freycinet 38.5 x 5 m type). The watertightness of the locks is ensured by an air-filled rubber bag. At the top, two canal bridges ensure the crossing of the railway. The manoeuvre, controlled from the cabin at the top of the central tower, required 6 men and only 20 minutes. With the introduction of the European gauge, the lift became too small and ceased to operate in 1967. A unique work of art in France, it was listed in 2014 and will soon be restored.

This area of dry valleys, which partly overlooks the marshes, is also the domain of windmills, of which Moringhem and Norbécourt still have the two most beautiful elements. Just like these mills, there are still some beautiful white limestone buildings: farms, the churches of Saint-Léger and Saint-Gilles de Mentques with their machicolations or Saint-Maxime de Difques and its Romanesque tower. The Calvary of Nort-Leulinghem, dating from 1780 and classified as a historical monument, is one of the most remarkable in the region. In addition, there is a fragile earthen heritage, ancient mottes castrales which were the first castles, as in Bayenghem-les-Eperlecques or Mentques. In the northern part of the region, the Hem, a river with clear, lively waters, flows through the area. At the ford of Zouafques, it crosses the Leulène, the ancient road that descended from England to Rome. It flows through an ancient medieval castle town, Tournehem, whose medieval gateway, square and water mill are all very charming. The river also flows through the hamlet of Guémy where time seems to have stopped... At the top of the hill, the old chapel situated in a protected natural site, opens onto one of the most beautiful panoramas in northern France. At a glance, you can see the whole of the Aa delta and the Opal Coast from Calais to Dunkirk.
