Port de Caen
Photography by Alex Moran
Like many coastal cities, heavy industry has been receding in Caen for many years. Some of these sites have been snapped up by commercial development, many more abandoned, it’s incredible to see how relentlessly nature reclaims them, creating rich green pockets, like accidental parks scattered around the centre of the city.
Bruno of CCN, our unstoppable guide around this city helped us find some of these fascinating places and somehow persuaded city authorities to allow us to stage our first French sharing of Walking Stories in a dramatic wasteland in the heart of Caen’s industrial port.
