This oak frame thatched building is almost 600 years old. It's
the town hall (Mairie) of Saint Sulpice de Grimbouville in France.
It was originally built in the nearby town of Selles, 12Km away,
in 1420 by English carpenters during the Hundred Years War. In
1996 it was threatened with demolition but saved by the people of
Saint Sulpice de Grimbouville along with three other cottages. You
can see a selection of other
natural homes going back 900 years including the oldest
continuously inhabited house in Europe.
