The Marillet Dam
The Marillet Dam was built from 1983 to 1987 to meet the ever-growing needs for drinking water, the need to support lower Lay and downstream marshes, and the irrigation of adjacent lands. The reservoir thus created extends over 127 hectares and its reserve contains 7,300,000 m3 of water.
Originally, Bellenour's cemetery was parish, then it became communal until the incorporation of the parish in Château-Guibert in 1802. in the central part are preserved the tombs of the Clemenceau de la Serrie family, descendants of the Jehan Clemenceau family in the 16th century, bookseller in Moutiers sur le Lay.
