The Cher


In the late nineteenth century river traffic on the Cher achieved its peak with nearly a thousand vessels transporting the wines of the Cher to the Haute-Loire and bringing back salt from Nantes or or slate from Angers. After World War II river activity sadly declined in favour of road and rail.


In 1954 the Cher was removed from the navigable waterways maps of France. Now, many years later, river tourism is at last bringing boats of many sorts back to the river Cher.
