  At the chapel of St Walrick

Another view of the chapel. Here I am standing with my back to the 'holy oak' .... By the way, I've read somewhere that the 'holy oak' itself, old as it may seem, cannot possible be the same tree that Walrick's daughter or Charlemagne would have found here. If that were true, that same tree would have to be over 1,200 years old by now!

At a certain point in time (mid-1970s?) the chapel had suffered so much damage that it had almost completely disappeared ; but then it was reconstructed to its present state, halfway between total disappearance and a complete chapel.
