Here it spreads across the end of the wheelhouse of the mill in the centre of Preuilly (above), and hangs in great tresses from the gutter of a building behind the château (below).

*I see Wikipedia gives Virginia Creeper a big plug as great for providing a safe – nay, beneficial even – way of covering old buildings with an attractive plant. I disagree. Even if the way the plant attaches to the building does not cause so much damage to soft traditional mortars as, for instance, ivy does, a blanket of stems and leaves covering a roof or wall means that there is a lot of moisture trapped in the gap between the plant and the wall. The wall can't expire in the way it needs to, and the plant itself is giving off moisture, compounding the damp problem, which will damage the fabric of the building and manifest itself on the interior.
