Nicolle Tower, Mont Ubé Dolmen and Dame Blanche

 

Today’s CBA Event started with a visit to Nicolle Tower, where fifteen people, lead by John Clarke assisted by Dr Ralph Nichols, had privileged access to areas normally not open to public gaze.

 

John and Ralph gave a presentation about the Tower and its known history and the geology aspect, after which there followed a short exploration of the various WW2 German fortifications spread out around this folly, which was used as a German lookout post.

 

We then made our way along to Mont Ubé Dolmen, where again John and Ralph enlightened us with the history of the site, and the artefacts that had been recovered during excavations and the various hypotheses as to its use.

 

The group then walked down through the wooded hillside to La Rue de la Blinerie, turning south along La Rue des Samaras, into La Rue de la Croix, before finally following the footpath to the menhir known as Dame Blanche, which is right in the centre of a large cultivated field.
