If you walk about Creuse for a while you going to come across a river crossing and if you're lucky it'll be an old stone footbridge instead of a slippery log (or nothing as has happened on some walks).

What lovely photos! We are particularly interested in the one over the river Goze as it is the baby Goze that goes through La Tour and between our beloved feudal mottes. Could you say exactly where it is?

I believe that it is here On a track between La Sciauve and Rue Des Forges West of Gouzon below the D915.

That's very interesting, Dave. Thank you. We use the D7 frequently to go to Gouzon but have never ventured off into any of the anciens chemins that close to the town. We will check it out. The shapes in the field nearby are really strange. I wonder what they are?
