Ploermel talk

La Cheze
Despite having been suddenly assailed by a heavy cold and very sore throat on Thursday, I had a great day in Ploermel yesterday, giving a talk on Walking the History of Brittany to some lovely people at the association La Source, who were kindly tolerant of a lot of sneezing and coughing mixed in with the odd spurt of lucidity.
I would normally also have enjoyed the five hours of driving, out via Loudeac and back via Josselin, but in the circumstances only had energy for one stop, deciding to make a brief revisit to the castle site at La Cheze, former Rohan stronghold, like so much else in the area, with a very chequered history.
