Château Le Lièvre

On an early wintermorning we walked through the nice snowy landscapes.
We passed horses, orchards and suddenly we saw Chateau Le Lievre between the trees. This charming small castle almost collapsed, parts of the roof were gone.
Our first impression was that it wasn’t anything spectacular, but eventually we could make some nice pictures of the pure decay. The history of this castle goes back to the 13th century. The estate consisted of a brewery and a yard, this was given to an abbey. Later the mayor bought this estate for this nephew and a musician.
They removed the yard, the cowshed and the brewery in order to build a nice courtyard with this castle. Still some details were present like a jar of Jenever, on the wall we saw old newspapers with publicity about the first soft erotic movies of the 70’s.
