Reasons for trip

This is on the coast just north of Plouguerneau. The site is not well signposted. There is a small car park by the site. We parked in a large car park by the sandy beach, where a small sign directs you down a track which is about 5 minutes walk to the site. This is surrounded by a tall hedge with a partially hidden cross. There is a small ticket office. The custodian was showing a large group round the site when we arrived. We think he must have been describing every stone in detail as he took ages.

This was the site of a medieval village. During the 18thC the sand began to encroach and cover the houses. Eventually the inhabitants left and the sand buried the buildings. A new village was built in the mid 19thC. The site was rediscovered in 1969 when a bulldozer digging the foundations for a new house. The ruins of the chapel, Presbytery and part of the graveyard have been excavated.

The church is surrounded by a graveyard with long flat grave stones. Carvings can still be made out on some of them – boat and anchor, spears, cross and two hands, shield… The walls of the church stand 3-4 feet high. There was a large porch on the south side with an attached ossuary to the side. Off the choir is a large chapel with graves of the Parscau Family. Beyond the church is a stone paved lane with high stone walls leads through an archway to the the remains of the Presbytery. There are the remains of a stone staircase, fireplace and windows.

Interesting if you are in the area but not worth a special trip.
