Monday 24 October 2022 – in the evening The inner open-shed part of the Emmaus charitable installation in Chinon-St.Lazare was destroyed by flames on Monday. Emmaus, a Church organisation, runs markets for house clearance items with the funds received going to Charity. Most of us have visited the institution, partly for fun, partly to find interesting old things of all sorts. No one was hurt or injured, thank goodness. Here we see several branches of the local fire brigades combatting the flames.Accident? Arson?*** Posted by Abbé Henri Proust at Thursday, October 27, 2022 No comments: Sunday 31 July 2022 Cape and Rapier 2022 *** Posted by Abbé Henri Proust at Sunday, July 31, 2022 No comments: Monday 13 September 2021 A new floor in the NW town walls tower. A new floor has been laid onto the original 1630s first floor beams of the North West corner tower of Richelieu’s girdling walls. The floor level was raised back to the original level, using floor laths and a structural floor of rather modern! ‘OSB’ – organised strand board. This ensures a strong and flat bearing surface to the old wobbly skeleton of old floor/ceiling beams. We have been told that the fine new floor boards themselves are of poplar wood.The next small step will be the restoration of the two fireplaces that are both quite dilapidated, and need many new fire-safe tiles and bricks to complete. Two cast-iron ‘plaques’ at the rear wall and two pairs of large firedogs are required so the chimneys can finally be used again, after a very long lapse. The chimneys above must have been restored or rebuilt in the 19th century, as must have been the roof itself Both seem in relatively good condition.Then – – what to do with the now-rotten lime plastering that barely adheres to the walls and causes endless cascades of dust and dirt and filth? The cut masonry too needs detailed repair from the effects of 500 years use!The little project rolls on! Many thanks to all the contributing artisans for their support and hard work!looking northwards to the occulus windowthe staircase handrail and the first floor fireplace. *** Posted by Abbé Henri Proust at Monday, September 13, 2021 No comments: Labels: building, History, Tour St. Anne Saturday 7 August 2021 Nocturne Gourmande – Friday 6 August 2021 Everyman has supper together in the place du MarchéEach year an evening is set aside for local caterers to ‘feed the multitudes’. In Covid-19 year 2, everyone had to be cautious but it seems that there is much less hazard in the open air. Many or even most of us are now double-innoculated.

The three houses which were recently burnt out by fire on the Route de Tours have been secured and await full restoration. The carriageway in front of them was closed for several weeks while the fire ravaged walls were stabilised. Instablity was the result of the lack of roof timbers that had given lateral restraint to the front street facade.*** Posted by Abbé Henri Proust at Tuesday, August 03, 2021 No comments: Labels: architecture, fire, Renovations Monday 2 August 2021 The Tour à l’angle is finally in use The Cité Idéale’s girdling wall NW corner tower can now be used practically, as he new floor and staircase make it all accessible. The little tower is now kept locked by the new entry door, but several keys have been offered to it new guardians. The completely replaced staircase leads to the upper floor – accessible for the first time in decades (centuries?), but the upper floor awaits its new surface flooring boards that will permit normal access and loading. We trust the restoration will continue so that this little building, unchanged in essence since it was built at the cost of the French Crown in the 1630s, is fully and practically useful to the present day.The tower’s interior – new floor; new staircase, hospitality!A little country feast for new visitorsUpstairs awaits new floor boardingMidsummer gardeningNew authentic windows – painted in ‘oxblood’The first floor’s occulus window (left open!!)
