Le Chateau the mystery unveiled
Well here it is, the one you have been holding your breath for. I sure hope you feel it was worth the wait and if you didn’t, well you know where you can stick your comments ? At the bottom of the blog of course.
I must say before His Lordship takes the platform to explain in layman terms and indeed those who wish to delve into this fascinating fact further I am providing a link, I would like to thank everyone for their fascinating observations.
Ventilation in hot climates has always been a challenge. However, the Arabs understood the effect of wind and the way that rising hot air draws in cooler air. They also seem to have understood the Venturi effect whereby allowing fast moving air ie: wind to pass over a pipe air will be drawn out of the pipe by the lower pressure of the fast moving air. This can be used to draw air through a house as was the case at Le Chateau. If you have not fallen asleep by now and wish to refer to this matter further refer to Ch08 wind escape on google.
The picture shows what remains and how it was linked into the house. Further proof to be found within the house was inconveniently removed and until I risked life and limb to bring you this world exclusive picture and searched in vain for the remains of the pipe, some long and distant memory came flooding back to me of a builder nearly decapitating himself on it.
And so it is dear readers that I announce in very hushed tones indeed that jackfall (is there a way to make my type smaller) seems to be rather close to the mark. And having investigated jacko fall rather more closely I see that he is involved in some way with a rather strange family up in Brittany and he may, I fear, come down and claim his half price weekend.
However hope is on the horizon. His Lordship did say that if I got one single solitary booking whatsoever through my b***** blogging then he would eat his hat, now that could be interesting !
