Main road in Oradour-sur-Vayres

    The main road through Oradour-sur-Vayres Department 87, Haute-Vienne, taken from just past the church. The church is out of sight to the left rear of the photographer. The layout of Oradour-sur-Vayres consists of the church on the left as the village is entered from the D40, a left hand bend in the main road, with a road off to the right and a long, rising, straight road through the village as shown below. This is the same layout as the original Oradour-sur-Glane.
