I was trawling my photographs when I came across these pics of the medieval fortress at Fougéres in Brittany and was reminded of one of the few disappointments of or trip up there in October..
We had been blessed with exceptional weather during the first few days of our stay but on the Monday turned a bit grey and we asked our host what we might do nearby on such a day. He suggested a visit over to the fortified castle,one of the largest in France,at Fougeres. I had seen photographs of it and it looked interesting. Although an hour from Dinan, he assured us it would be worth the drive.
