Aubigny-sur-Nere

Aubigny-sur-Nère is a commune in the Cher department in the Centre-Val de Loire region of France.GeographyAn area of forestry and farming surrounding a small light industrial town, situated in the valley of the river Nère some 30mi north of Bourges at the junction of the D940, D924, D30 and the D923 roads.HistoryFirst known as Albinacum in Roman times, the commune was established as a royal town in 1189 by Philip II. This is the location by which the Duke of Gordon gets his honorific title, as the Duke of Aubigny. In 1419, John Stewart of Darnley, a junior member of the House of Stuart, arrived in France with a large contingent of Scottish soldiers, to fight for Charles VII. He was awarded many titles, among them the Lordship of Aubigny. The family stayed here for 400 years.Links with ScotlandAubigny is a common tourist destination for Scots and others from the United Kingdom. The commune is very attached to the Auld Alliance, due to its 400 years of French-Scottish history and is the only place in France that still celebrates this long association each year, on Bastille Day. It is twinned with the Scottish town of Haddington, East Lothian.
