Here are some photos from a 5 kilometre walk we took on Monday 29 November 2021 from Le Grand Pressigny. The church was open and the priest pottering about setting up for a service, so I popped in for some photos before heading off on the walk. We ended up on a high ridge above the Claise Valley, looking over towards the nuclear power plant near Chinon (Fr. Centrale nucléaire de Chinon) in one direction and the Chateau du Grand Pressigny in the other.
