More of the Church Saint Pierre of Baud !!!

I go by here often passing by and stop for its wonderful monuments, This is Baud up the alley from me on the road D768 about 14 km (less 9 mi)  from my house. I have written posts on it before, this is additional found pictures from my vault that believe should be in my blog, Therefore, here is a bit more as most was written on previous post on the Church Saint Pierre of Baud, Of course, in my beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne and in my belle France. Hope you enjoy the post as I.

The Church of Saint Pierre (St Peter) , originally, the chapel that was adjacent to the parish church , destroyed in 1922. In 1927, the reconstruction project of the Church, decided, rather than rebuild it, to adapt a new nave to the northern façade of the nearby Chapel of Clarity or Chapelle de la Clarté, which then loses its initial function to serve as transept. Thus the Choir of the new Church is oriented to the south. It is to this complex history that the chapel owes its present composite aspect and its double tutelary as the Chapel of Our Lady of Clarity becomes Parish Church of St. Peter. The connection of the two buildings creates a breakthrough in the nave of the chapel. The Chapelle Notre Dame de la Clarté was from the 15C renovated in the 16C and 17C.   It now opens in the nave of the parish church since 1927 and houses the statue of Notre-Dame-de-la-Clarté.

The Parish Church of Saint-Pierre is now as said parallel to the Notre-Dame de la Clarté Chapel, to the north, before its collapse and destruction in 1922. The choir of this old chapel, perhaps from the 16C was rebuilt in 1687. A century later, in 1793, the nave was enlarged and a new facade was built. Despite these renovations, the nave collapsed in 1922 and the building was razed. A new nave was rebuilt in 1927, connected to the north facade of the Notre-Dame de la Clarté Chapel. The alignment plan of 1784 clearly shows the central place occupied by the then intact church and the very close chapel.
