Our midweek photo post is of an old abandoned farm we found along an overgrown lane, in the Orne, Normandy. At the entrance a brick house with shutters raised high above the ground looks out over a quiet valley of orchards and grass. Traditional stone farm buildings stand to form a square; stable, cider house, farm cottage and barns. The press doors stand open as though the farmer has just left, a huge barrel lurks in a shady corner.
It is a fascinating piece of Normandy history, will it be saved?
