Beaupré Abbey (Picardy)
Beaupré Abbey (French: Abbaye de Beaupré; Latin: Bellum pratum) is a former Cistercian monastery in the commune of Achy, department of Oise and region of Picardy, France. Its site is located about 2 km south-east of Marseille-en-Beauvaisis, on the Petit-Thérain brook.
It is not easy to determine exactly when it was dissolved - probably during the French Revolution, and possibly in 1791. In the 19th century the buildings were used as a cotton mill and later sold for demolition.
Buildings and site
The church has disappeared entirely. Still in existence are the refectory of the guest wing, the main gateway and parts of the precinct wall, as well as the ruins of the abbey mill.
