We have come across similar things to this many times in our wanderings around the Touraine, and in fact in other parts of France.
Any ideas what it is or the purpose of it ?
This one is in Le Petit-Pressigny.
Bon weekend !!
A historic fire hydrant, perhaps? Have a nice weekend! Martine
No idea, Jean, but it has a nice mediaeval look somehow.
Martine - it's much simpler than that!!Perpetua - it is attractive and I would like to have one of my own, if I needed it.
A non working bell push? Don't think so though. Diane
At first I thought part of a water feature, but no signs of water stains. So if it were on the ground a flag pole stand! Not.
Diane and Steve - you're not even close !!And I thought this one would be easy !!
Jean,I haven't got a clue but will confer with tim when he wakes up!!!
You'll have to tell...I can't begin to think what it is and I've certainly never seen one before.SP
