Wasn't it the Beauvais cathedral that collapsed during its construction?
It has been very fine to go through this passage in the light from torches, don't you think so? Thanks so very much Jo!!
The lighting brings out a hidden beauty !! Thanks for showing!! :) :)
You will have a gigantic experience, Ardy!! I promise!!
I haven't read it Hanne but made a note of the title. Thanks.
Ardy, have you ever read "Pillars of the Earth" by Kenn Follett? It's about building the first cathedral in England and how difficult it was, indeed one of the vaults fell down under a service!! It's an awfully good book, a little bit tough sometimes but you never forget the persons in there. They are SO splendidly described!! Thanks so very much!!
Again the masonry is astonishing. Too many of today's structures fall down almost before they are completed. Thanks, Hanne.
They had torches on the walls!! Thanks so very much Sandy!!
Must have been very dark in there. Thanks Hanne.
This is another photo from the vaults underneath the castle. We heard about the "fine" folks having parties yesterday, but the castle was filled with lots of other people doing their jobs while the "fine" ones feasted!
