Church saint Bartholomew to Cherier
The territory of this municipality occupies the northeast of the Township; It is less rugged than the other communes. The northwest side garnishes a wood of little scope.
The municipality of Cherier is divided into two sections: one, called the old will, where is located the ancient Church (that which we give the photo), has about 400 inhabitants, and has a communal school bringing children of both sexes with the number 50 to 60, entrusted to the care of a girl; the other section, called mills and Sarath, contains a population of 600 to 700; There is also a local school, but the sexes are separated: little boys are taught of a secular teacher; girls are run by nuns.
The new Church will date only twelve years. An assessment of the inhabitants at the top of which were the Mayor and the parish priest, provided the funds for the erection of this building which is located on a small height. It consists of three naves with ribbed vaulted, and was built according to designs by Mr. Blackwell. Its architectural style has borrowed several orders. Before the construction of this church, or were used for ceremonies of worship, a dependent Chapel of a particular property.
As the ancient church which is located in the old will, it is dedicated to saint Bartholomew, and consists of a nave vaulted arches; There are three chapels side, two Aisled choir and the other on the right wing, it is dedicated to the Virgin. The choir of this church still retains remnants of the respectable origin of its construction; the Byzantine style appears with its balusters, its arches, vaults and its dome which supports the Bell Tower. Nothing other is worthy of note, if the Interior of this building is below ground, descend seven steps to achieve this.
The lserable River, which originates in the territory, is moving several flour mills and a carderie of wool. These mills form an agglomeration of houses, they are used to refer to this part of the village.
It is in the hamlet formed by Mills that passes the Imperial road No. 81, Roanne-Clermont. The correction that we did suffer this road, passing it by Lentigny, Cremeaux-juror, leaving on the right the village of St. Just, will cause a notable prejudice to the communes of Sarath and Villemontais-Saint-just-en-Chevalet.
Sarath was village and parish in Forez, the archpriest and the election of Roanne, of the justice of Saint-just-en-Chevalet, and the spring of the Bailiwick of Montbrison. The Lord was M. the marquis de Simiane; Mr Lyon counties appointed to the cure.
There is stop the historical data to this municipality, which contains, in addition to the hamlet of mills, we talked, several other hamlets, including mountain, where veins of lead. Some looms the cotton, form just about any local industry. There is no trade and no fair held. The soil is fairly well cultivated; However the agricultural products are of ordinary quality; They consist of wheat, rye, oats, and vegetables; There are very few vineyards.
