In August 1914, fighting was raging in the region. On 23 August, the battle took place at the municipal border between Gozée and Marbaix-la-Tour. La Pasture Castle was converted into a temporary hospital. This route takes you to the different combat sites. Educational boards narrate events during the battle, but also during the years of occupation. At La Pasture Castle, French lieutenant Charles Cécile fell victim to a German artillery attack. The remains of a red cross on the wall of the estate attest to the building’s use as a military hospital. After the armistice, four of the five Australian divisions that came to fight in Belgium established their quarters in the castle in Ham-sur-Heure.
