Saint-Avit-Sénieur

Ange dragged us off to another village market, to Saint-Avit-Sénieur which is just outside Beaumont.  It wasn't so bad, I'm starting to enjoy looking through all this old junk. 

We stopped off in the town for lunch in the gardens of an 11th century Abbey (now in ruins) which was built in honour of St Avit, a hermit who died in 570, but was destroyed during the Wars of Religion.
