CASTLE IN THE SNOW

A visit to a medieval landmark on a snowy afternoon.

Château de Creully, Normandy

Unfortunately, most of France seems to have the flu at this moment, so we took a family drive to Creully, a small town several miles east of Bayeux.

The Chateau de Creully is a rare medieval fortress which evolved greatly between the 11th to 17th centuries.

After D-Day it was the BBC’s headquarters who housed its transmitter in the tower.

It was perfectly silent and still the day we visited, the lawns covered with a light blanket of snow. Flower beds colored the landscape, hopefully a promise of Spring soon to come.
