Rennes les Bains in General... new subject if anyone fancies it.

Fontaine du Platane, Rennes-les-Bains

http://razes11.skyrock.com/2825094836-R ... atane.html

Found in a link that C. G. posted up ages ago.


Nice once.
Never seen it before.

Ground came crashing down into the water it seems, at some point... or are my eyes getting old?

Which part of the village would this be? Is that Cardou/Montferrand in the distance, behind the buildings?

That's what I thought.

It's a large building...with a fontaine.
See the boy beside the river for scale.

Can someone with the know-how get the picture up on the screen for us ?

Nice one Mr Storm, thank you kindly.

I just found where this wonderful building is, so I'm rather chuffed ....let's see if anyone else can find it.

It's not mentioned in any book I can find.

But common sense will take you to it.

North edge of town, east side of Sals bank, somewhere opposite the pool? Next to Route de Montferrand.
Cannot find any good photo of that part...

Or trick question, somewhere totally unexpected?

That's le Bain Fort, but you're in the right area.

So that is the place.

To start with, why does it look like the ground have "collapsed" down?
What's that wall-like feature?

I think the top one of the white traces might be water overflow coming from the fontaine ?

Might be.

Also notice the large vertical patterns on the wall on the house to the far right.

Bearing in mind the marks on the wall you've noticed, could this be the remains of a barrage ?

The feature looks don't look very old, compared to when the picture was taken, small bricks/blocks. Could still be, of course. Small block constructions like this do not last very long so close to the river unless they are very well built.

But that house... I wonder of those vertical things that can be seen are large blocks, or just some material painted on the wall.

Would be very interesting to see what the contractions look like on the other banks, just opposite all this.

See those two large stones jutting out from the wall ...see the length of their shadow. Those have been part of something.

I'm thinking, the house wall parts, with the vertical blocks, could that in facts be what is left of some sort of an ancient aqueduct? Built into the house?
It sure does look like a possibility, a damn good one too.

Ah...a small aqueduct to take fresh drinking water over to the Les Bains de la Reine ?

I can see a sluice/gutter shape in the northern stone that juts out.

Water from the fontaine ( in the tall building) comes out and along the aqueduct to the thermes?

It would not be the first aqueduct with supporting pillars that had blocks "point out" from it:
