Tannerre-en-Puisaye

4
Tannerre-en-Puisaye is a commune in the Yonne department, in Bourgogne-Franche-Comté, in north-central France.It is famous for its antique ferrier (fr) one of the two largest in France with 31ha covered, and a listed Heritage Monument since 1982.A "ferrier" is a mound, hillock or hill made with residues from the extraction and smelting of iron ore.GeographyTannerre is crossed by the Branlin river, a tributary of the Ouanne river.HistoryTannerre's ferrier was started during the Iron Age, but 80% of its bulk was made during the 300 years of Roman occupation. A Celtic village, which then became Gallo-Roman, was set half-way up the hill on which the ferrier grew.After the Romans left, the mining activity in the area steadily declined to almost entirely disappear towards the 10th century. By then, the village had moved down near the river, where it still lays.During the 10th century, a fort called "Motte-Champlay" was built on a levelled surface above the piles of slag. It was destroyed by English captain Robert Knolles in 1360, along with the village and its other fort in the valley.The ferrier' slag had long been used in a small way to repair roads and pathways. Towards the end of the 19th century, industrial methods began to be applied. To that purpose, a whole railway network was built in the ferrier at the beginning of the 20th century, using a mm narrow gauge within the ferrier and a 600 mm gauge for the out-going tracks, complete with switches, turntables, derailers, workshop and well. It enabled the approach and operation of all workstations.
