*Links:

A personal page about the history of the area has current and historic photos of the church, and mentions the bells.

A virtual visit to the church, via the parish Website, requires a very modern Flash player.

The ARPAC Website presents much more detail than we can here, though it is all in French.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Causard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
