The Local Outings Club

Diary of Events

The Local Outings Club is intended for those members of the Association Des Amis who wish to discover or learn more about Central Brittany and its local heritage - history, religion, culture, customs, crafts and nature (landscapes, fauna, flora etc.).  Francis Le Lay, who knows Central Brittany so well, suggests an interesting visit each month, with commentary provided by the owners or by highly-qualified specialists.

 

Since the start of the club in September 2016, varied outings have taken place such as:

  • St Pierre's Church and St Gildas's Chapel at Carnoët;

  • the Church and Radio Kreiz Breizh broadcasting station at St Nicodème;

  • Monsieur and Madame Chambry's modern farm at Duault

  • St Pierre's Church and the Menou biscuit factory (and its museum devoted to  old shops);

  • Royden Jenkins's tree garden at Lohuec;

  • the volcanic lava quarry of Milin-ar-Stang at Lohuec.

 

The visits usually take place on Monday or Wednesday afternoons.
