    Odd question.
    Modelling related.

    Anybody know if there was a uniform type of cobbles found in French Cities of the period? Brick? or stone? Colour?
    I've got to do some that are a very regular rectangular shape and quite small.

    May just do them whatever looks best in contrast with a stone pavement, but was wondering if there's a 'correct' answer.

    If I visit any French towns while on holiday I'll take some pictures of some.
    Unless any members are already over there?

    Thanks for giving me an excuse to post another Norton WD picture Adam, and in BEF service to boot !


    I think that the answer depends on which region. The industrial towns of northern France still have plenty of blue/grey stone pavé that looks just like the Belgian stuff. I just happen to have some secondhand Belgian pavé (kasseien we call it !) outside so if you can wait until tomorrow, I can photograph it and measure it for you !

    It looks fairly regular if competently laid.

    Photographing really not necessary Rich! :D

    Blue/grey good enough for me, just wasn't sure if they were that or redbrick really.
