The church spire at Bailly-le-Franc
This slate-covered spire belongs to the church of the Exaltation-de-la-Sainte-Croix (Exaltation of the Holy Cross) in the village of Bailly-le-Franc in the Aube. The building is one of a dozen timber-framed churches erected in the vicinity of the Lac du Der-Chantecoq between the 15th and 18th centuries. The spire rises 26 metres above the second bay of the nave. Its octagonal base is covered with rounded chestnut shingles called “tavaillons”. The nave is covered with flat tiles. Built in one go around 1510, the church has never undergone any major alterations since.
