Les Forges des Salles

Perret 22570 Bon Repos sur Blavet

Description

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Rohan family, who owned Quénécan forest, developed an iron-making business in the area. They built the village of the Forges des Salles, in the heart of the forest. This was the biggest and most well-known ironwork complex in the whole of Brittany. Installation of the village was facilitated by three key elements, minerals, wood and water. The forges made canons for the French Royal Navy, farm tools and machinery, plough-shares, quarry tools, etc. In 1762, they employed 50 miners, 80 lumberjacks and 50 blacksmiths, all of whom lived in the village.
