The Lucky Old Mill Of Vernon And Its Less Fortunate Bridges

The old town of Vernon nestles at the side of the river Seine about 75 kilometers (47 miles) away from Paris. It has, as you can imagine, a long history and has been through periods of momentous change both in France and Europe. When change happens there are always winners and losers.

In Vernon, architecturally speaking, perhaps it's the old bridge which could be considered most unfortunate - it no longer exists. In fact it has been rebuilt and destroyed often enough for us to consider it perhaps the unluckiest bridge in the world.
