The proposed 'green route' between Chinon and Richelieu

Chinon castle across the Vienne river

The existing but derelict railway line that connects the cité ideale of Richelieu and the historic Plantagenet fortress town of Chinon - home castle of Henry II and Richard Coeur-de-Lion, both kings of England - will soon be converted to a 'green route' for cyclists and pedestrians.  It runs along the picturesque valley of the river Veude and later upstream, the little river Mable.
