WALK – BSM1 #3 – BOIS SAINTE MARIE – Circuit du Bocage – 8.5km – Feb 17th

A wooded farmland circuit best describes this bucolic pig farming walk! We begin outside the very beautiful 12c Romanesque church which I covered earlier click link  here. As it seems to be the norm we started off on another gorgeous Burgundian early spring morning.

All the walks well mostly well signposted and combined with the map difficult not to get lost.

All the walks so far are along bridleways, narrow lanes and tracks – no footpaths here

Croix Rajaud – this is one of the many wayside crosses you come across sometimes in the middle of nowhere, this one was fascinating with Roman type lettering at its base
