Close to Abbeville on the river Somme is the village of Eaucourt with its windmills and castle ruins.
The windmill is called “Moulin Guidon” as it served to “guide” boats into the port of Abbeville in the 17th century.
The chateau d’Eaucourt was built by the seigneurs de la Ferté duringhthe reign of Philippe Auguste (1186-1223). Demolished in 1358, it was rebuilt many times and inhabited until 1779 when it was broken down and converted to a farm. An effort to restore parts is currently in progress. Good luck with that.
Just got back from a great weekend in Belfast. Had to visit the Titanic Museum and it was well worth it. The building structure is spectacular and great as a photographer’s subject. Here are a few of the pictures I took. I had to shoot without tripod as Easyjet are pretty stingy with luggage allowance so I only took my camera body and the 24-105mm lens.
