Ancient tools and pieces of wood

Along the promenade in the park of the Château d’Acquigny, one can admire the height, the bearing, the framework and the flowers of a great variety of trees but without understanding the specific trees you may encounter. Therefore, in the former wine press shed, thirty pieces of wood from our diverse woods come together, allowing one to discover their color and make-up. In this room, a magnificent oak framework from the 17th century makes up the walls, bringing together all different types of Norman construction, including cinder blocks, bricks, half-timbering (colombage), and large stone.

In this room, four display cases bring together ancient tools that were used daily for working on the ground and in the woods,
