Anguilcourt-le-Sart is a commune in the department of Aisne in the Hauts-de-France region of northern France.

The inhabitants of the commune are known as Anguilcourtois or Anguilcourtoises[1]

Notable incidents[edit]

On 19 May 1983, 41 barrels of highly toxic chemical waste (dioxin-based), originating from the Seveso disaster, were found in an unused abattoir in Anguilcourt-le-Sart. The barrels, which had been illegally abandoned here by a transport contractor, were transferred the same evening to a military base near Sissonne. They were later destroyed in a high-temperature incinerator in Switzerald.[2]


Anguilcourt-le-Sart is located some 30 km south-east of Saint-Quentin and 25 km north-west of Laon. The A26 autoroute (Autoroute des Anglais, E17) from Saint-Quentin to Rheims passes through the north-eastern part of the commune but has no exit in the commune. Access to the commune is by the D69 road from Renansart in the north-east passing through the heart of the commune and village and continuing south to Les Larris. The D643 road also enters the commune from Achery in the west through the village and continuing east to Nouvion-le-Comte. the commune is almost entirely farmland except for some forest in the south-west.[3]

The Serre river flows through the commune from east to west just south of the village forming a part of the western boundary of the commune before joining the Oise at Le Travers.[3]

In 2012 the commune had 303 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the town since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of municipalities with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1] [Note 2]

Notes and references[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 [1] Archived 2016-03-06 at the Wayback Machine., the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities 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 on 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
  2. ^ In the census table and the graph, by convention in Wikipedia, and to allow a fair comparison between five yearly censuses, the principle has been retained for subsequent legal populations since 1999 displayed in the census table and the graph that shows populations for the years 2006, 2011, 2016, etc., as well as the latest legal population published by INSEE
