The Chateau de la Riviere which featured last week is not all dereliction by any means. It is currently used as an equine stud farm. It also boasts its own chapel, which features some outstanding stained glass windows.

Monday Window: Nantes Cathedral

Some readers might have heard about the fire that caused severe damage over the weekend to the cathedral in the city of Nantes. I’ve posted a couple of images of the stained glass windows in this enormous edifice in the past and here is another, rather poignant one.

As well as the arched window, this image shows the cathedral’s massive baroque organ, dating back about 400 years. According to reports, the organ was almost entirely destroyed by fire, although fortunatelly the cathedral as a whole did not suffer anything like the damage that befell Notre Dame in Paris.

Monday Window: The church at Azay-Le-Ferron

Last week I featured a window at the chateau in Azay-Le-Ferron, and this week I’ve moved on to the church.

Stained glass is nowhere near as impressive when viewed from the outside, but it’s an interesting and attractive window nonetheless, and harmonises well with the church door, I think.
