cycling france part four

Soissons and Compigne.

This is the carriage in the clearing where the Germans surrendered  in 1918 and then the French in 1940 except it isn't because the Germans burnt it in 1945, presumably to avoid the humiliation. Its a similar carriage, made a little later.

We Went to Montdidier, expecting to go to Amiens, but it was booked out, so Beauvais.

The astronomical clock in the Beauvais cathedral.

Ancient druidic stones outside Gisors. I couldn't find any more information beyond what is on geocaching.com

Cyder press, 18th century.

This monument dates back to the Knights Templar as we were told by a local.

Mantes-la-Jolie then Versailles

1500 km later we arrive at our Paris hotel.
