St Malo, Dinan

By Carolineld @carolineld
St Malo, DinanThe church of St Malo is, confusingly, in the nearby city of Dinan. It is named for one of Brittany's seven founder saints, a Welsh monk who travelled to Brittany in the sixth century and founded the eponymous town.
An unusual feature of this church is its English organ, made by Alfred Oldknow of Guernsey and installed in 1889. It was brought there thanks to two Englishmen living in Dinan, the chapel master John Lecoq and organist Frederic Arscott.
