The day dawned grey and wet, and I wasn’t feeling good – the driver’s cold had taken up residence in me – so, instead of countryside walking, we set off to explore churches – Enclos Paroissials – and to visit Landerneau.
St Peter’s Church, Ploudiry was the first stop.
The South Porch was built in 1665 and inside were extraordinary carvings. These fantastical figures seem to have little to do with religion – where do they come from? I was reminded of Assyrian figures.
And on the outside of the South Porch Arch this somewhat nonchalent Adam and Eve!
The Ossuary dates to 1635, with Death standing to attention on the frieze, marshalling his flock from all walks of life.
And then back into the car and on to La Martyre.
