La Citadelle


Our woods run all along the edge of the field below the lake. They run down to our boundary which is a small river at the foot of the hill, and then continue on for another mile or so. The consist mostly of mixed broad-leafed tress, unlike the plantations of poplar and pine which cover so much of the countryside. One of our central heating boilers runs on metre-long lengths of tree trunk, so all those trees do have a use. Some of the woods are quite open, like this, and other parts have dense, tangled undergrowth. There are deer, wild boar, and red squirrels in the woods. This wood wraps round from the west to the north
