Montrichard is a really pretty little town on the north bank of the Cher River. We have driven through a number of times, but never remembered about stopping until we had missed the opportunity to get a good view. I think the problem is that you dont get the real impact of the view until you are on the quite narrow but very long (and busy) bridge - and by then it's too late!
On Monday we were working in the area: in the morning we had visited Chaumont in the pouring down rain, and in the afternoon we were at Cheverny and the weather was improving. By the time we reached Montrichard on our way back to Chenonceaux the weather had brightened considerably. As we were heading in the opposite direction to which we normally travel, I was able to cross the bridge, then park looking back at the town.
