Post 16. Grenier / Granary

This grenier, like all the others, belonged to different owners. Based on available space, close to the houses, granaries were raised and placed on large round stones, so that mice could not reach their contents.

Thanks to its beams, in principle tight and interlocked, this type of construction did not let in flies and other insects that were attracted mainly by the meat.

Several greniers have been demolished or have been converted into homes. A grenier which no longer exists, located north of the chapel, had eight doors that corresponded to eight owners.

The last location, the grange-écurie for cows, lies at the foot of the grenier.
