Long Description:
" L'ancien clocher, sur lequel Delambre grimpait la nuit en 1793 afin de calculer la longueur du méridien de Paris, a été remplacé par un nouveau clocher. Couvert en ardoise, celui-ci est percé d'ouvertures et de «lucarniaux» (petites lucarnes), selon le terme utilisé dans la Beauce." (visit link)

Il y a une chouette effraie dans ce clocher, je l'ai entendue quand je suis venues chercher le FTF de la cache du puits ( (visit link) ), pendant la nuit.

(EN) "The old bell tower, which climbed Delambre night in 1793 to calculate the length of the meridian of Paris, was replaced by a new bell tower. Covered slate, it is pierced with openings and "lucarniaux"(small windows), as the term used in the Beauce." (visit link)

There is a barn owl in the belfry, I heard when I came to get the FTF of the cache of the well ( (visit link) ) overnight.
