A little way along from Le Chaboussant – Beauvoir I spotted some sort of Hut – I decided to look further – to my delight I found this old and delapidated Lavoir (wash house)- I am thrilled to have found this knowing that it has been here for a hundred years or so – I found some local history, I can’t imagine trailing across the field to get to this to do my washing as houses are quite far away – but then that’s what they did! After we left this area we spoke to a kindly elderly Frenchman who told us where Le Source is – I showed him this and he was very kind and said it is part of another source – merely a pond! I would have stood and chatted to him all day (he understood me and I understood his Patois accent!) it was a tad too chilly to stand around though,but we did find out he was born in the house just next door to us! Amazing :)
The Chaboussant circles Lezay starting at Le Source in Beauvoir travelling around Lezay and back to the pond at Beauvoir.
