New Bridge...old skills

This is the new bridge at Vicq-sur-Gartempe showing that stonemason skills are very much alive and well. We see many examples of it in the renovation work that goes on but it is good to see a larger project. This is actually a 'dry bridge' which leads on to the main bridge over the Gartempe river,

One of the finest renovations to stonework we have seen was at the church at Faliase in Normandy.I used to to be one to say " don't think we could do this nowadays" while looking up in the beautiful churches and cathedrals we have visited ...now I know they can!
