Walk on Tuesday September 4th, 2pm (plus optional morning visits)

On Tuesday September 4th we are exploring the not very well-known but very beautiful area of the Finisterien Trégor, north east of Morlaix. The coast here is stunning and there are many places of interest in the interior. If you would like to see a unique religious survival from possibly as early as the 8th century and an unusual/exceptionally fine parish close, meet in the centre of Lanmeur by the church at 11am. We'll have coffee before our visits and a picnic lunch on a lovely beach (weather permitting). If you prefer to eat at a restaurant there are options in the vicinity.
For the afternoon walk, please meet in the centre of Plougasnou (D46 north of Morlaix) by the church at 2pm TO DRIVE TO START. We will be exploring the Pointe de Primel which has some flat paths and some very rocky ones. Participants can do as much or as little as they like. Time permitting we'll have another fairly level coastal walk in adjoining Primel-Trégastel afterwards and doubtless some liquid refreshment.

History of Brittany course

This course makes the History of Brittany relatively simple and fun. It will run over four Monday afternoons (October 15, 22, 29 and November 5) from 2 - 4.30pm at the café/bookshop L'Autre Rive in Huelgoat. The first session will be an overview from megaliths to modern, and then we'll look at events/people/evidence in more detail. New course materials and new methods of remembering essentials provided. Discount for bookings before September 19th. See

Despite the weather...

We had a good walk today in the Monts d'Arrée - nothing like some misty atmosphere in that terrain. What started as a bit of a trudge in the rain turned into a very enjoyable and eventually dry experience. It's great to walk with positive, happy and amusing (in the nicest possible way!)people! And not to mention Allie - doggess of the day.

As always in August we have a Monts d'Arrée walk, starting at 2pm on Tuesday from the Ferme des Artisans carpark on the D785 near Mont St-Michel-de-Brasparts, about 8km north of Brasparts. There are many options from this point and the route chosen will be determined by the weather. Medium, Level 2, walking shoes, boots advised. All welcome.
