Château du Lac in northern France (photograph by Alain Dejeaifve)
In the north of France, a more specific location could not be found on the web, remains a 16th century castle, one of the few reminders of that time in the region. Built on the ruins of a castle of the 13th century, this castle is a tasty mixture of Renaissance architecture extended by more common buildings. The castle is surrounded by a large wooded park entirely on a small hill overlooking the village, the valley and a small lake. It is attracting interest because it is of significant size and is an almost unique architectural example.
Château du Lac was built in 1314 and suffered from many evils since then. It literally survived and lingered through time. Victim of fire, military occupation and now sheer abandonment, it is remaining feebly alive in an advanced decaying state…
It has been left behind by its current owners, leaving it to decay. With no restoration for several decades, the roof begins to collapse and the castle has slowly deteriorated into its current state.
