  1. There are quite a few of these around, when I saw the first one I thought it was rare, but although not common that can be found fairly easily. What is interesting though is that they are all a bit different. Another great Friday shot, have a good weekend Diane xx

    1. I did a bit of research and they seem to be mainly in our area, the Poitou Charente. Not sure why and they do vary in design x

  2. Are they memorials, or just a nice piece of architecture?

    1. Not a memorial but they are placed in cemeteries to mark their location. A light shine from the top so you could see them at night. There are lots of different designs, some more grand than others x
