Geography[edit]

Beaumé is located some 70 km east of Saint-Quentin and 50 km west of Charleville-Mézières. It can be accessed by the D37 road from Besmont in the west passing through the commune and the village and continuing east to Aubenton. There are also several other country roads accessing the commune from all directions. Apart from the village there are two other hamlets: La Courte Soupe and Monplaisir. The south of the commune is heavily forested however most of the commune is farmland.[2]

The Ruisseau de l'Etang Polliart flows from the south-east of the commune to the north with several tributaries as it continues north out of the commune to join the Ton river at Leuze.[2]

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 [1], 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.
