The Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption church is a parish Catholic church located in Marissel, in the town of Beauvais, in Oise, in Hauts-de-France, in France. The facade and the side elevations of the nave and the aisles suggest a vast flamboyant Gothic style building, but if the height and the width of the nave are actually generous, it is very short, and stumbles to the east against a Romanesque bell tower not visible from the west, which is surrounded by several spans built between the middle of the 12th and the middle of the 13th century. Absidiole in a cul-de-four at the bedside of northern collateral is none other than the apse of the previous Romanesque church. The chapel of two spans which occupies the location of the northern cross dates from the beginnings of Gothic architecture, while the southern cross and the small choir with a flat bedside came from two different campaigns in the first half of the 13th century, which have Apparently dragged in length to judge from the stylistic gap between the big work and the vaults with their supports. The connection between the choir and the apse and the chapel of the southern cross which frame it is not very happy, because the two side arcades of the choir do not open directly on the adjacent spans, and because of the extinity From the base of the bell tower, the sanctuary is practically not visible from the nave of the faithful. Also, we considered it the total reconstruction of the eastern parts to the second half of the 16th century, and started by the extension of the large arcades towards the east of the old spans, without however demolishing them . The lack of resources, however, imposed an interruption of the work at the end of the 17th century. Left in the state, the eastern parts of the Notre-Dame church today constitute an interesting testimony of the methods of successive reconstruction used once, while the nave seduces with its beautiful volume, the lightness of its architecture and the coherence of its model. The church of Marissel was classified as historic monuments by decree of June 13, 1913, and is today affiliated with the parish Beauvais-Nord.
