I’m guessing this was the French equivalent to an English folly, probably built by a wealthy vine-grower in the region so he could survey his estate. The date-stone puts it at 1900 which fits time-line-wise as many follies where built in England during Victorian times. It now lies on a small back-road outside the village of Saint-Marcel-sur-Aude, empty and neglected. Wished I’d realised it was on the road, having tramped through the mud across the field to it! It has two rooms; one at ground level and one floor up. There’s also a roof area which was inaccessible. It’s got some nice decorative touches and had a sundial on one wall. Can’t really say much more about it than that so on with the pictures.
