Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is the Abbey of Bon Repot, on the banks of the Nantes to Brest Canal.

It was a Cistercian Abbey, built in the 12th century.

For the last 25 years, the ruins of the abbey have been used as a great theatre to house a production tracing the history of Brittany. The production takes place in summer and is staged for several nights.

Sadly. we have never been there when the production has occurred but if you follow this link there are some fine shots and good historical notes about the production.

Even if you cannot see the show, the ruin is an interesting place to visit during daytime. There are a couple of artisan shops nearby and an outdoor café.

Best wishes from a very wet and windy N.W. England, Bev :-)
