Geocache Description:

Find an old public wash-house (lavoir)

On our travels on the french canals, we've met plenty of old public wash-houses (places where people came to wash their clothes). We think it would be interesting to collect pictures of more of those, and we also are curious to know if there exist something similar in other parts of the world.

To log this cache you need to find an old (minimum 100 years) public wash-house used for washing of clothes (a lavoir). Supply your log with pictures of the washhouse and your GPS. If it's possible you might also write a short description of the wash-house and it's history.

As an example we've uploaded pictures of the old wash-house in Tonnere (France). This place is called La Fosse Dionne. It's told that there lives a big snake at the bottom and several divers have died while exploring the source. The cache-coordinates N47° 51.398 / E3° 58.243 are from this wash-house.

One find per geocacher, each lavoir can only be logged once. Sanne and Mats from Sweden
