Geography

Hailles is situated on the banks of the river Avre and by the D90e road, some 10 miles (16 km) southeast of Amiens.

History

The name probably comes from ‘haie’ (eng: hedge), and has been variously written as Haies or Heilles. During the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, some francs-tireurs, hidden behind the town fired 60 times on a Prussian officer. All missed, he wasn’t even scratched. The German troops threatened to burn down the town.
