“The American Military Cemetery of Colleville-sur-Mer is the most famous war cemetery in Normandy. The long lines of white marble Latin crosses and stars of David symbolise the sacrifices that the Allied nations - and here in particular the United States of America - have made for our freedom. The cemetery is an exceptional site, not in the least because of its impressive location dominating Omaha Beach, where the Americans suffered their worst losses. It take around 45 minutes to drive to the American Cemetery from La Forge and is well worth a visit.”

“Coutances Cathedral is a beautiful structure that was not destroyed during the French Revolution, and miraculously barely touched during the tumult of the Allied bombings and landings of 1944 - even though much else around it was destroyed! The cathedral’s roots date back to when a Roman temple occupied the spot. This temple was changed into a church in the 5th century AD, which was later destroyed by Vikings in 866 AD – as was the original Roman aqueduct. Two centuries later the church was rebuilt as a Romanesque cathedral and was consecrated in 1056 in the presence of William the Bastard (better known later, perhaps, as William the Conqueror!). in 1180 it was restored and altered and in the 13th century transformed into the Norman Gothic style, although aspects (such as the twin towers and the columns in the nave are from the original Romanesque period). It is possible that the columns (or sections of them) date to the original Roman temple/basilica. One of the 13th century stained glass windows depicts the life of Thomas Becket.”

“There's a circular walk from the chapel, with stunning views of the salt marshes and of Mont St Michel in the distance. In the quiet season you might have the whole walk to yourself. It's a good blackberry picking spot too.”

“Omaha beach, cemetery and memorial. Immensely moving and important. Even if you think you know about the D-day invasion, to see first-hand where such enormous sacrifice took place will inspire you.”

“A simply beautiful Église that NO ONE visits. This is probably both good and bad. You will have no one to disturb you whilst perusing its wonders. Built from the 11th century on the Église boasts a 14th century fresco of the Last Supper with a twist in the tail (I won’t spoil the surprise) and a 16th century fresco of the trials of Sainte Barbe (Saint Barbara). There is also a 16th sculpture of the Madonna and Child. These were all saved from the French Revolutionary Guards by a quick thinking parishioner or cleric who whitewashed the frescoes and buried the sculpture. These were all rediscovered in the late 19th century!! Outside there are around 50 modillions in the form of grotesques dating to the 12th century designed to ward off evil spirits. Obviously, a belief in Christ wasn’t enough for 12th century worshippers!! ”
