juda de surveillance dans la salle des petits déjeuner

Some exterior walls are almost a meter thick at the bottom. The timber and lintels were probably cut up on site. Some parts were built for animals and others for humans : fireplace in the main rooms, the bread oven and the well nearby…terracotta  tiles or clay floors, few candles here and there like a painting by Louis Le Nain : The peasant family. Why this representation rather than another? The characters do not look unhappy. They are poor but healthy. That is what I deeply feel about the ones who used to live in this farm.


On the Napoleonic cadastre plans of 1830 , unknown buildings appear whereas they don’t exist anymore. Under the trees, I found some former basal wall remnants on a pond edge somewhere in the North of the property.

I supposed this place so called “ Froid vent” (Cold wind) had gathed several families.



The buildings


They were built to shelter and face the stresses of life. Stones on the ground are stacked on each other and fixed with lime mortar.
