Blay

Blay is a tiny village near Bayeux in the Calvados region of Normandy in France. It was from here that our earliest known ancestors, the de Blez family, are thought to have gone to England in the 12th century.

The village centrepiece is the church of St. Peter, parts of which were constructed in the 11th and 13th centuries. A few houses surround the church and the rest of Blay is comprised of farms scattered around the area.

Below are some pictures taken there in the Summer of 2000.
