Stayed an extra day in Pont L’Eveque to do some shopping and look at Noyon.

Main street in Noyon with Cathedral in distance

The closest town is Noyon, home of Joan of Arc and an enormous cathedral, built in the 6th  century and knocked down,  burnt down, bombed, pilfered etc etc many times.  It is good to see it is still standing and in good condition.
