A port linked to William the Conqueror
The port of Beuzeval-Dives is marked by history. For a month, Duke William the Conqueror's fleet was stationed there while his army of fifty thousand men encamped in the vicinity. In 1066, he set out with John of Aché to conquer England. On October 14, 1066, they won the Battle of Hastings. This event remains engraved in the stone of the column erected on the beach of Beuzeval. The monument evokes the departure of William the Conqueror to England as the greatest historical event in Norman annals.
