St Suzanne is a spectacular medieval castle overlooking the River Erve, which downstream flows nearby Les Hallais. The wind chose to take me there today, but I decided to explore the river valley and the bluff opposite, rather than the town itself. A quiet walk threading past the mills (one of them was a paper-making mill), and climbing up to the hill for the view over to the castle. Here are some pictures.
It's always a picture-postcard view of St Suzanne, here from the hill opposite that is known as the Tertre Ganne. William the Conqueror tried to take the town from this position, but failed.
These streams were laid out to form part of the mill irrigations, but now just serve as decorative backdrops to veg patches, cottages, and garden flowers.
And finally, a look at Autumn at the Tetre Ganne
