23/05/2016 A trip to Confolens.

Maximum temperature 15C minimum 4C.  42 km/h  NW winds.  10mm rain measured this morning.
The countryside is soooooo green,

An auger, looks like they are putting in new telegraph poles. 
Apologies for the reflection on the car windscreen!

Rail bridge

The newer vehicle bridge over La Vienne river in Confolens....

See above.

The old car bridge - a 13th century granite bridge with ten arches though it was modified in the 18th century.

The town of Confolens is on both sides of La Vienne river.

Looking down the river on the other side there is a weir.

Many 15th and 16th century old houses in Confolens...

as above...

As above...

and over the rooftops.

Nearly home, wonder what those power cranes are working on?

I have written a full post on Confolens here if you are interested.
