Doesn’t matter where you go in Gorges du Tarn, you’re apt to come across something worthy of taking your camera out of its bag.
Whilst driving along the Gorge de Dourbie we saw this bridge and thought it one of the most photogenic we’d ever seen. Somewhat surprisingly, the bridge and the two houses had a name, Le Moulin de Corp.
To access the bridge you have to go through someone’s backyard though apparently it’s a public right of way as there are signs there. The owners of the house on the river must, at times, find it hard to put up with the public traipsing through their backyard.

When we reached the bridge we were fascinated as to how you could have a river literally running on the foundations of your house. It wasn’t a place I’d like to live in should there be floods imminent.
However, at other times the soothing rush of water would be wonderful I imagine. The Dourbie was flowing quite well when we were there and made for a fascinating stop.

My Formative years were spent between two wartime airfields, so each night was spent sleeping in shelters, and school was always tense as dogfights were being fought overhead,
We made our own amusement in those days, and presents were second hand wooden toys if any could be found.
My teenage life found me on Motorbikes and fast cars.

My Later life was dogged by peaks and troughs of health problems.

    Absolutely beautiful, Malcolm – wonder how they managed to build the house in the first place!

  • Many thanks Shullie Sally & I wondered that, the water goes under the foundations
