Musee de plein air - the dovecote of Frethun
France

The Monique Teneur Association, Saving the Rural Heritage, has undertaken since 1989, the rescue of a dovecote of the eighteenth century in the town of Fréthun, which was then at the TGV terminal of the future tunnel under the Manche and condemned to disappear forever of the landscape of our campaigns.

At the time, there were only two dovecotes of this kind in the region.
The dovecote was dismantled and the materials stored on private property.
This typically Calais eighteenth century dovecote is built of bricks of sand and stones that surround the openings.
The building consists of a square base with four metres side. Its size at the top is slightly smaller than the base. It peaks at 10 m on a coverage of slate roof.

The shot was taken in july 2013, in the middle of the afternoon. Panorama made in HDR version (enfuse).

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
