Bresles is a commune in the Oise department in northern France.

It lies northwest of Paris.

Geography[edit]

Bresles is about 88 km (55 mi) north of Paris, and just under 15 km east of Beauvais.

History[edit]

Its existence is attested since 1262 and the chapel of St Peter and St Paul, dating from 1312, is all that is left of a fort founded in 1212. The web page created by the Oise department (see freeoise.free.fr) mentions an obscure nineteenth century opera artist by the name of Levasseur as a significant native of Bresles, but does not mention the much more notorious French fascist leader Jacques Doriot.
