Yours truly

A walk in the park?

[EN] Abandoned palaces aren't very uncommon in France but often they are very empty. But in this case there was plenty of stuff left though most was of a newer kind. Especially the ground floor was cramped with junk. Magazines, books, computer stuff, two pianos, two grand pianos and a large amount of chairs, and much more. Perhaps the last master of the house held concerts for an imaginary audience sitting on these chairs. A calendar from 2003 showed that the place hadn't been abandoned for that long though the decay and neglect obviously had been going on for decades.

The palace burned down in August 2012 and the future for the remains are unknown to me (as of when typing this). Perhaps a park around the ruin walls?

[SE] Övergivna slott är inte helt ovanliga i Frankrike men ofta är dom tömda på inventarier och andra detaljer. Men i detta fall fanns mycket kvar även om det mesta av prylarna var av nyare typ. Framför allt bottenvåningen var belamrad med bråte. Mängder av tidningar, böcker, datorprylar, två pianon, två flyglar och ett stort antal stolar, med mycket mera. Kanske höll husets sista herre (för det var en sådan) konserter inför en fiktiv publik sittandes på dessa. En kalender från 2003 skvallrade om att stället inte varit övergivet alltför länge även om förfallet uppenbarligen pågått i decennier.

Slottet brann ner under augusti 2012 och framtiden för resterna är för mig okänd (när detta skrivs). Kanske en park kring ruinerna?
