The Château of Le Chatelier ~ a view before renovation


Here’s a great aerial shot of the village of Le Chatelier in the South Touraine. Interestingly it was taken before the Château of Le Chatelier was renovated and it was used as a working farm. Striking points include: the overgrown moat, the sheaves of straw left out to dry, trees and hedgerows that have been grubed up to enlarge fields, lack of TV aerials, etc. Now, what I want to know is, ‘Who’s the man leaving the Protestant Grange’?
