Beauvais is an ancient town in northern France that dates back to Roman times.  It has an unusual Gothic cathedral, a bishop, and a traditional tapestry industry.  Once an important stopping point on the route to Paris, it is now the location of the capital's "third airport" according to the likes of Ryanair.

Dr Manette's home town has twice been besieged by English armies.
