Agriculture still plays a major role throughout this area, and many very old farms are still working today. There are many delightful walks in the Tilleul and Blaregnies woods: some have been waymarked with support from the Hauts-Pays Nature Park. These include the Louis Piérard Trail and the Battle of Malplaquet Trails. Then there is the GR long-distance footpath, which gives walkers a different view of the district.
In many of the villages, visitors can still see the traces of previous inhabitants, such as the Frankish tombs discovered in Asquillies, the Roman and Frankish coins found in Aulnois and the stone-age flint axe, Roman road and coins issued by Emperor Domitian unearthed in Havay.
Throughout the year, the district council puts on festivals and events, including the re-enactment of the Battle of Malplaquet, the Harvest Festival, the Fête à Béria and the Quévysienne.
