Situation géographique

Située en bordure de la vallée de la Saône sur un plateau valloné, la commune de Battrans est à 5 km de Gray . Elle est à mi-chemin entre la D474 (axe Gray-Vesoul ) et la D67 (axe Gray-Besançon).

Histoire

Au XIXème siècle, le minerai de fer était exploité à Battrans, qui comportait alors un atelier de lavage, un patouillet, quatre lavoir à bras et un haut-fourneau. On peut encore voir des vestiges de celui-ci à la limite de la commune d'Ancier .
Les villageois exploitait également la vigne, avant que celle-ci soit décimé par une épidémie de phyloxéra au XIXème siècle.

Patrimoine et culture

Juchée sur une butte de verdure, l'église Saints-Pierre-et-Paul domine le village de Battrans. Construite au XVIIIème siècle, elle abrite un crucifix du XVème siècle en bois ainsi qu'un beau retable orné de nombreux angelots.
Autrefois, on pouvait également voir dans cette église une statue du XIIème siècle, mais celle-ci a malheureusement été volée en 1997, en même temps que deux autres sculptures.
Le clocher carré pyramidal contient deux cloches, rendues célèbres par le dicton "c'est la cloche de Battrans : qui ne la voit l'entend!"
Le lavoir de Battrans a récemment été restauré. Chaque année, il accueille une crèche réalisée par les habitants de la commune.

Tourisme

L'eau est partout à Battrans, faisant de la commune un lieu verdoyant et agréable, plein de petits coins tranquilles propices à la détente.
Autour de l'étang s'étend un vaste parc privé. Depuis 32 ans, plus de 300 espèces d'arbres y ont été planté, ainsi que de nombreux massifs de fleurs. Cet arboretum se visite sur demande.
