I'm sure Paul Saussez wont mind me posting this new photo he recently posted on his Facebook page. I can say no more than quote Job Michel-Clovis - who wrote: "With the total counting of the deco[ration] of SAUNIÈRE, we are immediately transported visually in 'mystery' of this church, simply splendid and catastrophic that this work is not officially encouraged". He is absolutely right - great work Paul!
Paul added: This is a reconstruction of the Church as it seems to me that it should be in the XVIIIth century. The date of 1740 at the top of the steeple reminds us. There are: leftmost the Carolingian baptismal font that SAUNIÈRE had reused ..... at the gate of the cemetery. On the right, in the nave, ......a staircase descending to the tomb of the Lords; right again, under the apse of the apse, the wall that separated the choir and the sacristy where fit the old altar table; always right on the south facade, the "door of the Lords' including the Bay was remployed in 1879 to allow access to the 'new' sacristy; on the far right finally, at the bottom of the 'door of the Lords', access South to the crypt, which will be hidden under a fake tombstone (perhaps that of Marie de nègre) when the underground necropolis has been sentenced. It is on this site that SAUNIÈRE has built his 'secret room'.
