Le lavoir de Brangeard

The name of Brangeard comes from an old parlanjhe verb "branger", meaning to plow a field after the harvest and to leave it uncultivated during the winter.
It is the most important washhouse of the village and the only one covered. Restored very recently by the municipality, it dates from the 19th century. Rectangular, it is fed by a spring protected by a small stone shelter outside the building. But it is also fed by rainwater thanks to its impluvium roof. The roof allowed the rainwater to flow into the central basin while protecting the washerwomen.
