Reasons for trip

On the Plogonnec to Guengat road, there is a small sign to Chapelle St Thegonnec. Thistakes you down a narrow lane and past a farm. Beyond is a small parking area and the chapel is reached along a grassy lane through the trees. It is in a lovely setting in a clearing among the trees.

Little is known about its history but it is thought to have been built on a pre-Christian site. It is probably a 16thC building although the west gable has a date carved saying it was rebuilt in 1701.

It is a plain, small stone building with two doorways. This is one of the few churches in Brittany that has a fountain inside it. A spring feeds into a small fountain in the nave which has a small pool for ablutions. It then ran across the floor and out of the opposite wall before running off down the bank.

The church looks unloved and unused. The walls are suffering from damp. It is plain and simple inside. There is no pulpit and two carvings of saints on either side of the altar, (one is St Thegonnec) and a statue of the Virgin. There were two tables with tourist information and stacked up chairs.

It is a lovely setting and well worth the detour to find it.
