4/26.- Ouessant, Lampaul Steeple


The church has a typical Breton steeple, riddled with holes so the wind can blow through it. The steeple was a gift to Ouessant from Queen Victoria, as a token of her gratefulness to the inhabitants who took care of the victims when a British ship, the Drummond Castle, was shipwrecked near Ouessant in 1896. The victims were given a decent funeral, and the few survivors hosted, clothed and fed by the locals.
