Laurent at Notre Dame, Paris

The famous Parisian Gothic cathedral built in 1163, was due for maintenance back in 2012. Laurent was employed as foreman to oversee the repair and replacement of solid French Oak doors, some of which stood several metres high and needed a crane to lift them in to place!

While onsite, Laurent had full access to all private areas including: hidden passages, the roof and basement – what a unique view to witness!

It is likely most of these items perished in the fire of April 2019.
