History

Bédarieux is located in the Orb valley , a coastal river flowing north-south upstream from Bédarieux then east-west downstream. It is overlooked by the Monts d’Orb and the peak of Tantajo. Since 2012, Bédarieux has been part of the Haut-Languedoc 2 regional natural park . The Orb crosses the town of Bédarieux, the two banks are connected by the “old bridge” to the south and the prefecture bridge to the north.

The Saint-Nazaire de Lodéran chapel (now disappeared) was mentioned in 1153. Bédarieux was at one time a notable manufacturing centre. Its cloth-weaving industry, carried on under a special royal privilege from the end of the 17th century to the French Revolution, employed in 1789 as many as 5,000 workmen, while some thousand more were occupied in wool and cotton spinning, etc. In spite of the introduction of modern machinery from England, the industries of the place declined, mainly owing to the loss of the trade with the Levant; but in the late 19th century they somewhat revived, owing partly to the opening up of coal mines in the neighbourhood.
