Kin - Stoqueu

Two twin villages, the first one built on the plateau, the second one on the hill.

Kin, the name of which would come from the celtic word "Keen" (top) or "Caunos" (mountain) would have been founded by potters who found there clay spots interesting for their work.
Opencast mines supplying the factories of Dieupart were exploited until the middle of the 19th century.

In the centre of the village behind the monument you'll see a range of old houses, some of them with "potales".

Don't forget to visit the "chantoir(e)s", huge funnel that absorbs the water from the stream in important underground galleries.
