Dagmy Lambercy and Coingt … Where The Feathered Friends Worship Too…

In continuation of the previous days posts,  our Singaporean friend “Velveteen” and Family Kiwidutch are touring some of  the fortified churches in the department of Aisne in the Picardy region of northern France.  We have just come from  the villages of  Nampcelles-la-Cour and Harcigny,  and have now arrived in the village of Dagmy Lambercy to see the fortified church there. Once again I came up with no results when trying to find additional information about these churches, therefore this will be a photographic post….

Just under the spire is a dove-cote… or general bird housing association…

The combination of weather in the background, I capture a halo of light in the clouds… or maybe off the lens? I’m not sure…

From Dagmy Lambercy we then make our way to the next fortified church, located in the nearby village of Coingt…

The amalgamation of styles is clearly evident… if only the stones could talk!
