A Different View of le Grand Pressigny


If you go down to the river in le Grand Pressigny, where the Aigronne meets the Claise and instead of gazing dreamily into the slowly moving water, turn around and look back at the town, you get this view. Two substantial bourgeois houses of some age (at least a hundred years) and a more modern looking workshop – but what is the story behind the remnant brick chimney next to the workshop? What was manufactured here – so close to these quite fine houses? Was the chimney once taller?

  4. nomore and Rodrigues: thanks for your comments - it is very common to see a bicycle just leant against the kerb or a wall, totally unlocked.

    As youre probably aware - you always have to take the little roads that appear to lead nowhere!
