Geography[edit]

The N158 in Aubigny. The windfarm is also in Aubigny

Aubigny is located some 26 km south by south-east of Caen, 27 km north by north-east of Argentan and 3 km north of Falaise. Access to the commune is by Route nationale N158 from Caen which becomes the A88 autoroute west of Falaise and has Exit 10 on the southern border of the commune. Access to the village is by the D658 from Soulangy in the north passing south through the commune and the village, connecting with the N158 south of the village, and continuing to Falaise in the south. The D6 comes from Villers-Canivet in the north-west and passes through the west of the commune before joining the N158 just south of the commune. Apart from the village there are the hamlets of Le Chateau, Les Bruyeres, and Long Pre. There is some forest in the south near Long Pre and the rest of the commune is entirely farmland.[2]

The Ruisseau du Cassis flows north through the commune forming a small section of the north-western border before continuing north to join the Laizon north of Soulangy. The Ruisseau du Chateau de Long Pre comes from the south and feeds the moat around the chateau.[2]

Demography[edit]

In 2010 the commune had 324 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known from the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by Law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002, the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" allows, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For communes with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these communes is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
