Long Description:

"The Saint-Omer church of Beussent replaces an older building.This first sanctuary had some Romanesque elements.In the early nineteenth century, the initial church consisted of two naves separated by three octagonal pillars.

The removal of two of these supports that hindered the view towards the choir causes the collapse of the roof on May 12, 1873. Solicited the next day by the factory council, Clovis Normand can only find a few parts of walls erected when visit the rubble on May 23rd.

The first stone of the building was laid August 22, 1875. It is an unfinished building which was inaugurated on June 2, 1878, unobstructed and without stained glass.

Built in local chalk and Creil stone, the upper floor illuminated on each side by a geminated window directly supports the octagonal arrow. Bays with two or three shapes surmounted by a polylobé oculus rather refer to the twelfth century. "

" L’église Saint-Omer de Beussent remplace un édifice plus ancien. Ce premier sanctuaire présentait quelques éléments romans. Au début du XIXe siècle, l’église initiale se composait de deux nefs séparées par trois piliers octogonaux.

La suppression de deux de ces supports qui gênaient la vue vers le chœur entraîne l’effondrement de la toiture le 12 mai 1873. Sollicité dès le lendemain par le conseil de fabrique, Clovis Normand ne trouve plus que quelques pans de murs dressés lorsqu'il visite les décombres le 23 mai.

La première pierre de l’édifice est posée le 22 août 1875. C’est un édifice inachevé qui est inauguré le 2 juin 1878, non voûté et dépourvu de vitraux.

Bâtie en craie locale et pierre de Creil, l’étage supérieur éclairé sur chaque face par une fenêtre géminée supporte directement la flèche octogonale. Les baies à deux ou trois formes surmontées d’un oculus polylobé font plutôt référence au XIIe siècle. "
