OK does anyone know if there are any still in existance in Poitou-Charentes? If so please let me know, I want to photograph it before it goes. These were very much part of the French countryside 40 years ago but of course modern methods have now taken over. I did see some a couple of years ago in southern France but they were made of metal. What I want is one constucted of old wooden poles and what would be really good would be if it actually had maize stored in it.
