Forest Of Vierzon

The forest of Vierzon is a part of the Sologne region. This is a large area of land reclaimed - in the 1800's - from marsh and swamp. (In total about 1800 square miles, with boundaries on the Loire to the north and the Cher on the south).

The Sologne is watered by the Cosson and the Beuvron, tributaries of the Loire, and the Sauldre, an affluent of the Cher, all three having a west-south-westerly direction. The pools and marshes which are characteristic of the region are due to the impermeability of its soil, which is a mixture of sand and clay.

It is a wild, wooded area; popular for hunting.
