    This was the very first place I have visited outside the UK.
    This is a place that when I saw photos of it I was like im going there.

    Was a cracking place for me as I love all the history of the stuff inside and the way it looks.

    History -
    Possession in the twelfth century of knightly family of Quesnel, in the fifteenth of Riencourt, then Gans, the lordship fell to sixteenth Jean Le Fevre, Caumartin Lord in Ponthieu, who bought in 1569 the general charge of Finance in Picardy.
    At the end of the century, Renee Le Fèvre de Caumartin marriage brought it to Jerome Le Maistre Bellejamme, adviser to the Parliament of Paris.
    Louis Le Maistre, their son, was master of petitions to Parliament, then intendant of Picardy, and chaired the présidiaux Amiens and Abbeville gathered in 1636 to judge the unfortunate Saint-Preuil, Governor of Arras.
    He saw the following year his lordship of Quesnel erected in lordship, and went to the State Council.
    His son Jérôme Picard forsook his land to the Parliament of Paris which he was president investigations, and his grand-son Henri-Louis, Adviser in the same parliament, ends in 1733 by getting rid of Quesnel.
    Mentioned in a 1617 burrow, the castle occupied a mound surrounded by ditches. Built of brick, covered with slate and flanked by two towers, the residential wings - small, apparently - had not had to escape the looting committed in 1636 by the Imperialists.
    Jean Fort, the purchaser of Quesnel, had married in 1700 Marie Damiens, daughter of Bartholomew, Lord of Acheux Dealer Amiens, he was received in 1732 secretary of the King in the Grand Chancellery, and we stressed on this occasion that he had gone through all the charges that distinguish traders.
    It was after his death in 1751, his son Jean-Baptiste built the present castle.
    Indeed dated from 1753, this white stone, soberly animated chains crosswalls stressing the central front building and the angles of the side pavilions, did not lack elegance, as reflected in the curved path of the low annexes governing the courtyard.
    In 1806, Marie-Charlotte The Fort Quesnel married Alexander, Viscount Blin de Bourdon, who made a nice political career during the Restoration and the July Monarchy.
    Their son Charles (1810-1869) settled in Quesnel which he transformed the château. He built a house in 1853 in the West, he carved key windows, and unfortunately compromised the balance of facades by adding a second floor, loaded with large skylights, balustrades and arms performed by the Dutoit brothers.
    Raoul Blin de Bourdon (1837 - 1940) played like his grandfather, a, a leading political role. Wounded in 1870, fighting in the mobile guards, he was elected in 1872, became secretary of the National Assembly and was constantly re-elected in the riding of Doullens, until 1893.
    In 1914-1918, the town of Quesnel had the good fortune to stay away from the front lines, which did not prevent the castle from being occupied as of August 31, 1914 by a German staff and damaged by bombing and ransacked by the troops.
    Viscount Blin Bourdon had it restored and left the her daughter, the Countess of Lussac.
    Again occupied during the last war, and long remained uninhabited and sold in 1985, he regained his residential.
