My Sunday Photo - 28th February 2016


I recently visited the nearby Medieval city of Domfront and delighted in beautiful old buildings, ancient and more modern churches, a fantastic ruined castle ... and the best drain covers I've seen in a long while.  If you are going to have a drain cover why not make it a bit more attractive which is just what Domfront as done adding their coat of arms and city name. There are more Domfront pictures here.
